Oracle - If variable is null?

I need to return some dummy select when my variable matches string. This is what I tried: begin if :someVar = 'Yes' then select 1 from dual; end if; end; / I've tried declaring a variable for INTO clause, but I allways receive error "**PLS-00103: Encountered the symbol "end-of-file" when expecting one of the following..**". Can somebody show what should I change to get desired select ? I'm beginner in Oracle, and I need this for SSRS reports, for setting parameter default values (based on another parameter - which is **someVar** in my question).
