Instead of
jkirkerx wrote:
ORDER BY CASE
WHEN vendor.Delete_Flag = '1' THEN 0
WHEN proj_cost.pref_vendor <> 'Y' THEN 1
WHEN proj_cost.pref_vendor = 'Y' THEN 2

I'd rather do
SQL
ORDER BY
   vendor.Delete_Flag desc,   -- '1' then '0'
   proj_cost.pref_vendor asc  -- 'N' then 'Y'
than make the ORDER BY have to do CASE statements. This allows the optimiser to have greater control rather than second guessing how it works internally.

This is just a personal preference - there may be other respondents who would be horrified by this simplistic approach.

Your original
SQL
ORDER BY CASE 
    WHEN Proj_Job.job_type = 'FX' THEN 0
    WHEN Proj_Job.job_type = 'OP' THEN 1
    WHEN Proj_Job.job_type = 'EQ' THEN 2
END
is a bit harder, but dropping the test for 'EQ' and just having ELSE 2 might be easier / quicker. e.g.
SQL
ORDER BY CASE 
    WHEN Proj_Job.job_type = 'FX' THEN 0
    WHEN Proj_Job.job_type = 'OP' THEN 1
    ELSE 2
END
