Syntax error near AS

In SQL Transform, I have...

 

SELECT * WHERE
(CASE
WHEN (FcstName LIKE '%Fcst%' AND 'Rev Month' = 1) THEN ('Margin EV'*0.314/GM_Pct)
ELSE 'Margin EV'
END)
AS MarginEVAdj
FROM sales_pipeline

 

I'm getting a syntax error "Near AS", but can't figure out what's wrong.

Thanks!

    Replace the WHERE with a comma.  The WHERE clause needs to be after the FROM

     

    Try the following:

    SELECT *,
        CASE
           WHEN (FcstName LIKE '%Fcst%' AND 'Rev Month' = 1) THEN ('Margin EV'*0.314/GM_Pct)
           ELSE 'Margin EV'
        END AS MarginEVAdj
    FROM sales_pipeline
