Hi, thank you all for responding. I decided to use a stored proc instead of a function and used Dynamic SQL to write my query.
Create Porocedure GetName
(
  @column nvarchar(50)
  @columnData nvarchar(50)
)
As
Begin 
   Declare @MyQuery nvarchar(300)

  set @column=   IF (@column IS NOT null AND @column ='TableA.SomeColumn') 
    Begin 
    Set @MyQuery = N'Select'+ TableA.[@column] + 'from dbo.TableA
        (where TableA.Column1 LIKE' + @columnData + '+ ''%'' OR' + @columnData + 'IS null)' 
     END         
End
EXEC sp_executesql;

I get no errors but it does not work. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.
