I am migrating a Sybase ASE installation to SQL 2008R2, and have a query that runs on the Sybase, but not SQL. Can anyone tell me how to do this in SQL:
SELECT appl_no,
id,
(select f_name from person where person.id = testers.id) f_name,
(select l_name from person where person.id = testers.id) l_name,
approved,
credential,
broadening,
getdate() 'sent'
FROM testers

If I run this on SQL, it returns the 'Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.' error, and I understand why. On Sybase, it runs fine.
So..how will this need to be constructed to run on SQL?
Thanks in advance...

There might be a problem with your data and you might have duplicate ids on either of your tables. A quick solution could be the following but it might not be the best option.

SELECT appl_no,
id,
per.f_name,
per.l_name,
approved,
credential,
broadening,
getdate() 'sent'
FROM testers t
--Might need OUTER APPLY
CROSS APPLY(select TOP 1 f_name, l_name from person p where p.id = t.id) per

I'm not 100% sure what the output is supposed to be (it's a very long time since last I looked at SYBASE) but I suspect that thh query is actually a straightforward inner join:
 SELECT t.appl_no,
t.id,
p.fname,
p.lname,
t.approved,
t.credential,
t.broadening,
getdate() AS sent
FROM testers t INNER JOIN person p
ON p.id = t.id
