Standard Case question

I have a field called [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] that has the balance debits and credits. I am sure you are seeing where I am going with this.

I would like to have 3 columns first column is [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] As Balamt

Then I would like case when's setup.

Aka Case when [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] AS Balamt >0 then (new Column)[ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] AS Credit

Case when [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] AS Balamt <0 THEN (New Column)
[ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] AS Debit

May be this?

SELECT [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt], 
       Case when [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] > 0 then [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] END AS Credit,
       Case when [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] < 0 then [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt] END AS Debit
FROM [ar-open-tr]

You can include a table alias instead of [ar-open-tr] for more clarity
SELECT T1.[Trans-amt],
Case when T1.[Trans-amt] > 0 then T1.[Trans-amt] END AS Credit,
Case when T1.[Trans-amt] < 0 then T1.[Trans-amt] END AS Debit
FROM [ar-open-tr] T1

What about scenarios where [ar-open-tr].[Trans-amt]=0?

>= 0, would go as Credit

SELECT T1.[Trans-amt],
Case when T1.[Trans-amt] >= 0 then T1.[Trans-amt] END AS Credit,
Case when T1.[Trans-amt] < 0 then T1.[Trans-amt] END AS Debit
FROM [ar-open-tr] T1
