    Apex does not support switch case statements.Use if else if .statements for this. However, Yes formula fields support case syntax but Apex doesn't.

    Hi Ajit,

    Apex doesn't support switch clause as of now.. Salesforce will release it next year... So instead of switch case you have to use else if condition..

    Thanks
