I have a table called 'Journal_Info' containing titles of various journals
When searching and listing them I want to remove any preceeding 'The ', 'An ', or 'A '
that occurs in the title and I also want to be able to search it. The case statement as
follows seems to work fine:
WHEN title LIKE 'The %' THEN RIGHT( title, length( title ) -4 )
WHEN title LIKE 'A %' THEN RIGHT( title, length( title ) -2 )
WHEN title LIKE 'An %' THEN RIGHT( title, length( title ) -3 )
END AS modtitle
But if I try a WHERE clause using the columns AS title I get an error.
Can anyone help me figure out how to search the CASEed column?
Thanks in advance for any help.
