It's exactly what it says: The syntax you're using is wrong.
If you'd actually post the query you currently have we might be able to help you with a more precise answer than "correct the syntax".

Are you using SQL Server 2005 or better? If not, you'll need to use a cross-tab, instead.

Simple demo:

DECLARE @Demo

value MONEY NOT NULL
);

INSERT @Demo (group_id, value) VALUES (1, $1.00);
INSERT @Demo (group_id, value) VALUES (1, $2.00);
INSERT @Demo (group_id, value) VALUES (1, $3.00);
INSERT @Demo (group_id, value) VALUES (1, $4.00);
INSERT @Demo (group_id, value) VALUES (2, $5.00);

INSERT @Demo (group_id, value) VALUES (3, $7.00);

SELECT group_id,
value
FROM @Demo;

SELECT P.[1], P.[2], P.[3], P.[4]
FROM @Demo D
PIVOT (
SUM(D.value) FOR
D.group_id IN ([1], [2], [3], [4])

Hi,

Seems to work ok for me.

Try removing whitespace after pasting the code, occasionally I've found odd (non-display) characters in code pasted from the forums.
