convert month number to month name


convert month number to month name

Hello everyone; I am new to the forum and want to say hello to everyone. I am a system programmer working with SQL 2008R2, 1 month on the job and just got put on a major projects and I am drawing a blank wondering if someone could help me out.

I have  two tables on one database table1 is customers table and table2 is Inventory table. I need to compare the customer to the inventory to see if forms are obsolete or out of stock. the code I am working with is like this.

select *,

'[tblCSSCustUpdate].Status' = CASE

WHEN tsg.Obsolete='N' THEN 'Out of Stock'

WHEN tsg.[Inventory on Hand]= '0.000' THEN 'Out Of Stock'

--else 'FulFilled',


WHEN tsg.Obsolete='Y' THEN 'N/A'

-- WHEN tsg.Obsolete='N' THEN 'Completed'

WHEN tsg.[Inventory on Hand]= '> 0' THEN 'Completed'

else 'New'


FROM [CSSFulfillment].[dbo].[tblCSSCustUpdate] cust left join

[CSSFulfillment].[dbo].[tblTSGInventory] tsg on

cust.FORMIDNUM = tsg.[Item ID]

But, this is giving me a new column and not change the exist status column??.. can someone please help me out.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: convert month number to month name

I don't get what you want, the title is about month number/name, but the T-SQL snippet is something totally different.

And then you ask why the CASE doesn't change the existing status?

Can you explain what's your actual problem?
