RE: Decode function

Not as such, but I do this all the time by use of the sign function.

 

For example, if you want to return X if val> 100, Y if it's less, and Z
if it's equal , you can do:

 

select decode(sign(val-100),-1,'X',1,'Y',0,'Z','error') from dual;

I think the answer is no, but can you set greater than, less than
conditions in a decode function?

 

TIA!!
