Stored Proc Error with Isnumeric

IF (    (NOT ISNUMERIC(LEFT(@newExceptionLbl, 1))) AND (NOT ISNUMERIC(RIGHT(@newExceptionLbl, 1)))      )

I get this error:
Server: Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Procedure test_put, Line 100 Line 100: Incorrect syntax near ')'.

Anything wrong with this statement?

IsNumeric returns 1 or 0.  Try this, instead of using NOT:

 IF (ISNUMERIC(LEFT(@newExceptionLbl, 1))=0)
     AND (ISNUMERIC(RIGHT(@newExceptionLbl, 1))=0)
Brendt HessSenior DBACommented:
The NOT syntax you are using is from languages like VB, where NOT TRUE = FALSE, and only works on Boolean operations.  IsNumeric does not return a Boolean, but an INT.
