MYSQL CASE statement within PHP syntax or correct quoting ?


Hi I’m trying to use a MySQL “CASE” statement within PHP to develop a conditional query. The query runs fine within from the MySQL command prompt with the “case” statements. And the PHP code works fine when I remove the lines that begin with “case”. However when I run the query as listed below within my PHP code i get the following:

[Fri Apr 20 22:15:24 2007] [error] [client] PHP Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /srv/www/htdocs/mysql-learn/acetrack-post.php on line 68, referer: http://webserver1/mysql-learn/acetrack-post.html

< code snip >

$query ="
acetitle, tracking_no, aceamt,
case when (To_days(curdate()) - To_days(create_date)) >= 90 Then pototalamt else “” end as “90past” ,
case when (To_days(curdate()) - To_days(create_date)) < 90 and (To_days(curdate()) - To_days(create_date)) > 30 Then pototalamt else “” end
as “30-90past”
FROM Purtable t
LEFT JOIN acelog a
ON ace=acenum
WHERE ace=‘0220’

$result = mysql_query($query);

< /code snip >

Thanks in advance for any help.
