Is there a workaround to this as decode does not seem to allow the use of greater than equal sign
I am trying to show the comment for any days beyond 4 days, not just 4 days.

decode(shipdate-orderdate,'4','This is unsatisfactory!') comments
from orders

Thanks in advance!

You can try this code

select (case when shipdate-orderdated>=4 then 'Unsatisfactory!' else 'Satisfactory!' end)
from orders
