Hi Experts!

I have the following SQL and it error out on:

Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'IF'.

Declare @memid as varchar(13)
    set @memid  = 'QH23455909187';

WITH MEM_CTE AS
(
  SELECT memid
  FROM tbl01 EK WITH(NOLOCK)
  INNER JOIN dbo.tbl02 p WITH(NOLOCK) ON ek.someid = p.someid
  INNER JOIN dbo.tbl03 eo WITH(NOLOCK) ON ek.someid = eo.someid
  WHERE  blah blah.....
)

  IF NOT EXISTS
    (SELECT DISTINCT mem.[memid]
     FROM MEM_CTE mem
     LEFT JOIN tbl04 ag ON mem.someid = ag.someid
     WHERE blah blah ...
     BEGIN
       PRINT 'Member is NOT not listed' + CHAR(13)
     END

Can you please help?

TIA
