I don't know that I could help much with your statement.. But you mentioned
doing if() statements in SQL queries.. Well, my programmer always writes
them into PHP scripts then just runs them from there.. Then he can include
if() conditions, or whatever else he needs.. Just a quick little
cust_import_utility.php script..

--For what it's worth..
