multi-part identifier "..." could not be bound.

Greetings,

I have a query that was running just fine until I added an additional field.  This query is part of a stored procedure that has four temp tables.  You can safely assume that all temp tables have been filled and the last query that ran fine looked like this:

               SELECT
      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_A, Field_B, Field_C FROM #TableResults1 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_L, Field_M, Field_N FROM #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info2')), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_X, Field_Y, Field_Z FROM  #TableResults3 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info3')), '') +
      '</Range>'
      

I decided I needed to take the results of the query above and add it to a new temp table (for reasons out of the scope of this question) along with 'Field_A' which is already in the query above.  Hence, the new temp table and query looks like this:


CREATE TABLE #TableResults4 (Field_A VARCHAR(512), Field_Z text)  // Field_Z is the entire results of the query above

INSERT INTO #TableResults4  -- ******* ERROR *******
      SELECT (SELECT Field_A FROM #Table1Results4 X),
      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_A, Field_B, Field_C FROM #TableResults1 Y FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_L, Field_M, Field_N FROM #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info2')), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_X, Field_Y, Field_Z FROM  #TableResults3 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info3')), '') +
      '</Range>'
      WHERE X.Field_A  = Y.Field_A

You can see how I tried to bind the two fields but was not successful.  Here are the errors for the line marked with stars above:

Msg 4104, Level 16, State 1, Procedure SP_MY_PROCEDURE, Line 73
The multi-part identifier "X.Field_A" could not be bound.
Msg 4104, Level 16, State 1, Procedure SP_MY_PROCEDURE, Line 73
The multi-part identifier "Y.Field_A" could not be bound.

what about this:
INSERT INTO #TableResults4  -- ******* ERROR *******
      SELECT x.Field_A 
      FROM #Table1Results4 X
      JOIN ( SELECT 
      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' + 
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_A, Field_B, Field_C FROM #TableResults1 Y FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_L, Field_M, Field_N FROM #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info2')), '') + 
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_X, Field_Y, Field_Z FROM  #TableResults3 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info3')), '') +
      '</Range>'
      ) Y
      ON X.Field_A  = Y.Field_A

You are trying to address inner-scope tables in the outer scope of your query. There is no reference available in the outer scope.

John500Author Commented:
I forgot to mention that the Field_A comes out of TableResults1.

Thus, do you still think I should use #TableResults4 X rather than:

INSERT INTO #TableResults4  -- ******* ERROR *******
      SELECT x.Field_A
      FROM #Table1Results1 X
      ....

Right now I get the errors below when using the following:



INSERT INTO #TableResults4  -- ******* ERROR *******
      SELECT X.Field_A
      FROM #TableResults1 X
      JOIN ( SELECT
      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_A, Field_B, Field_C FROM #TableResults1 Y FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_L, Field_M, Field_N FROM #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info2')), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_X, Field_Y, Field_Z FROM  #TableResults3 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info3')), '') +
      '</Range>'
      ) Y
      ON X.Field_A  = Y.Field_A

John500Author Commented:
The outer scope tables in this case would be #TableResults1 and the results of Y  - yes/no ?

Daniel ReynoldsSoftware Applications Developer / IntegratorCommented:
X is in an outer scope and Y is inner-scope (a select within a select)

John500Author Commented:
Any suggestions?

Daniel ReynoldsSoftware Applications Developer / IntegratorCommented:
Sorry, I see you now have aliased your inner select as Y. So both are now in the outer scope or context. The one thing you have not done is name your column in Y as Field_A. and I am not sure with all of your xml in there that you can reliably do that.

I made a mistake on the table I should be referening.  It's actually #TableResults2

Notice the changes on both lines with the stars and tell me if this is what you were talking about.  

Thanks

INSERT INTO #TableResults4  
      SELECT X.Field_A
      FROM #TableResults2 X    -- *******************************
      JOIN ( SELECT
      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_B, Field_C, Field_D FROM #TableResults1 Y FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +

I had 'Y' in there where it wasn't supposed to be after #TableResults1 (but didn't mean to put it there.....)

INSERT INTO #TableResults4  
      SELECT X.Field_A
      FROM #TableResults2 X    -- *******************************
      JOIN ( SELECT

remove the Y. from below line and try it
ISNULL((SELECT Y.Field_A, Field_M, Field_N FROM #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT

This ended up being the ticket:


SELECT
      (SELECT TOP 1 [Name] FROM #RangeInfo),
      (SELECT

      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_B, Field_C, Field_D FROM    #TableResults1 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Y.Field_A, Field_M, Field_N FROM #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info2')), '') +  
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_X, Field_Y, Field_Z FROM     #TableResults3 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info3')), '') +

Bad, paste - this was the ticket:

SELECT
      (SELECT TOP 1 [Name] FROM #RangeInfo),
      (SELECT

      '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?><?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="http://....xsl"?><Range>' +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_B, Field_C, Field_D FROM    #TableResults1 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info1'), ELEMENTS), '') +
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_A, Field_M, Field_N FROM    #TableResults2 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info2')), '') +  
      ISNULL((SELECT Field_X, Field_Y, Field_Z FROM     #TableResults3 FOR XML RAW ('Info'), ROOT ('Info3')), '') +
      '</Range>')

Let's try that again:


SELECT
      (SELECT TOP 1 Field_A FROM #TableResults1),
      (SELECT
