    Unanswered: If Statement Syntax Problem

    I have the following code:


    SELECT
    A,
    IF B > C
    (SELECT B)
    ELSE
    (SELECT C),
    D
    FROM MyTable


    A, B, C and D are integer columns in MyTable.
    I get "incorrect syntax near the keyword 'IF' "
    I'm playing with parentheses but I can't get it to work.
    What's wrong with my syntax??

    Thanks,

    Bjorn

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.
