For the following SQL statement I receive an error that state Tables or functions 'Offices' and 'Offices' have the same exposed names. Use correlation names to distinguish them.

SELECT *
FROM Services
INNER JOIN Offices ON CentralOffices.centralOfficeId = Services.startId
INNER JOIN Offices ON CentralOffices.centralOfficeId = Services.endId

Any suggestions on how to go about doing so? TIA.

use table aliases:

SELECT *
FROM Services s
INNER JOIN Offices o1 ON o1.centralOfficeId = s.startId
INNER JOIN Offices o2 ON o2.centralOfficeId = s.endId

SELECT *
FROM Services
INNER JOIN Offices O1 ON CentralOffices.centralOfficeId = Services.startId
INNER JOIN Offices 02 ON CentralOffices.centralOfficeId = Services.endId

would solve the ambiguity... but you don't seem to be joining on the table Offices
Your "on" needs to match a key from services to offices, not CentralOffices

Sorry, my code should be

SELECT *
FROM Services
INNER JOIN CentralOffices ON CentralOffices.centralOfficeId = Services.startId
INNER JOIN CentralOffices ON CentralOffices.centralOfficeId = Services.endId

I'll give the suggestions a shot right now.

Doesn't work for me. Get the error:

The multi-part identifier "[table.column]" could not be bound.
