I have a query like:
Select Project_Code, Project_Name, L_Proj
from Projects

L_Proj is bit data type but I want to display it as text:
If L_Proj = 1 return 'Part of Larger Project'
If L_Proj = 0 return 'Independant Project'

Can I use if statement within the query to return what I want ??

Thanks

Use CASE:

SELECT Project_Code, Project_Name,
L_Proj = CASE WHEN L_Proj = 1 THEN 'Part of Larger Project' ELSE 'Independent Project' END
FROM Projects
