doesn't look like the following is allowed:

SELECT CASE
	WHEN DATEPART(wk,@ffTestStartDate) BETWEEN 27 AND 47 THEN --middle of year to end of first tri
		SET @dwSeasonKey = 4 --Fall
	WHEN DATEPART(wk,@ffTestStartDate) BETWEEN 11 AND 26 THEN --end of second tri to middle of year
		SET @dwSeasonKey = 2 --Spring
	ELSE
		SET @dwSeasonKey = 1 --Winter
END


using IF is rediculously ugly. Is there something I'm missing with CASE? Thanks

The syntax is as follows:
SELECT @dwSeasonKey = 
CASE
	WHEN DATEPART(wk,@ffTestStartDate) BETWEEN 27 AND 47 THEN --middle of year to end of first tri
		4 --Fall
	WHEN DATEPART(wk,@ffTestStartDate) BETWEEN 11 AND 26 THEN --end of second tri to middle of year
		2 --Spring
	ELSE
		1 --Winter
END

just FYI
Another SQL 2012 way to do this is by using IIF


SELECT @dwSeasonKey = IIF(DATEPART(wk,@ffTestStartDate) BETWEEN 27 AND 47,4,IIF(DATEPART(wk,@ffTestStartDate) BETWEEN 11 AND 26,2,1))
