Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'AS'

  • Hi Everyone.

    I'm hoping someone can take a look at my code here to see what I am missing. I'm trying to create a sub-query and name its alias, and then include that alias/column in the outer select query. But when I do that I get the error message Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 7

    Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'AS'. If you could take a look that would be awesome.  Thanks.

    INNER JOIN Product.ProductToPerson ON PK_ProductToPerson=FK_ProductToPerson

  • I would start by giving all tables a short alias (some tables do not have any) and use it in all respective columns so it is clear to anyone which table a column is from.

    you are also missing a comma after "P2.lastname as technicaladministrator" - formatting the code helps identify these issues.

    regarding the subquery - as alias are missing we don't know if that subquery is related to the main query or how.

  • Hi Frederico_fons.

    Ok, so you're saying I should add aliases to all the tables and a comma where you mentioned...and then reupload the code to take a look...

    Will start working on that...may take me a day or two.

    Thanks for your help!
