SQL2000- How to use DateDiff Function together with (If then..else)

Hi, I am new to this forum please help.

I need to schedule a job to send out an email if found there is a records older than 1 minute (compare to current date time against createddate) and the email will contain the itemid.

mytable design
1.) itemid int
createddate getdatetime()
summaryid varchar
startdate datetime
enddate datetime

this is what i have done

SELECT TOP 1*,DATEDIFF(mI, createdate, getdate()) AS ms
FROM mytable

Can anyone advised on this...
i was also thinking putting in the

set rowcount 1
if (SELECT DATEDIFF(mI, createdate, getdate())FROM prontoqueue) > 5
Print 'more than 5'
Print 'less than 5'
setrowcount 0

i am hitting an error message...
Server: Msg 512, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.
less than 5

please advised....thank you
