No, you can't do math on a string like that.  (greater than space?)
if @srchtype = 'books'


Okay okay.... I need to check if a parameter has a value.  I can't
hardwire a value into this stored proc.  I'm not checking for a specific
value, I'm checking to see if is has ANY value.

If a user fills in the "city" field for example, we need to include this
into the WHERE clause:

'AND city like @city'

How do you check for a value in a stored proc?  

Maybe: If @city IS NOT NULL?
