I have to create a View that is extremely similar to another view expect for changes in Field Identifier values. I used the first as a template for the one I am trying to create. As per usual, I have looked at this thing a 1000 times and know there must be a disconnect or typo somewhere that I am not seeing.

I get the following two errors.

Msg 4104, Level 16, State 1, Procedure vPVTDetail, Line 2
The multi-part identifier "A379.EntityID" could not be bound.
Msg 4104, Level 16, State 1, Procedure vPVTDetail, Line 2
The multi-part identifier "A46.EntityID" could not be bound.

CREATE VIEW [dbo].[vPVTDetail] AS  

SELECT A1.EntityID,[PVT Loan Name],ParentEntityID,[Base],[Loan Date],[Finance Terms],[Principal],[DSRF Rate],[Amortization Term],[DSCR],[Year Sized],[Int. Only Period Info],[Int. Only Period - Yrs],[Benchmark Index (Period)],[Credit Spread],[Underlying Rate Per],[As of Date Per],[Index Information],[Benchmark Index],[Underlying Rate In],[As of Date Ind],[BPS Spread / Index],[Credit Spread - bps],[Lockbox/Servicing Fee],[Credit Enhancement/Insu],[Forward Premium - bps],[Other - bps],0 AS [Tot. Interest Rate],[Fees, Costs, Exp. & Res],[Underwriting Fee%],0 AS [Underwriting Fee Amt],[Debt. Serv. Reserve - mo],[Debt Serv. Reserve $],[Surety Policy Cost $],[Max Annual Debt Serv.],[Annual Reg. Costs],[Annual Trustee Fees],[Annual Surveillance Fees],[Legal Expenses $],[Rating Agency $],[Transfer Taxes $],[Title Insurance $],[Surveys $],[Bond Fee $],[Commitment Fee $],[Other Third Party $],[Environmental Fee $],[Appraisals $],[Other Expenses, Costs and Fees],0 AS [Total Exp. $],0 AS [Total Exp. % of Princ],0 AS [Principal Minus Expenses],[All-In Finance Percent],[Interest/Loan Life],[All-In Finance Cost],[Spec.

FROM ( SELECT EntityID,EntityName AS [PVT Loan Name] 

FROM dbo._EntityName WHERE EntityType = 105 AND IsDeleted = 0) A1 

LEFT JOIN ( SELECT EntityID,RowNumber,CAST(DetailValue AS int) AS ParentEntityID,EntityName AS [Base] 

FROM dbo._DetailsEntity WHERE FieldID = 9320) A2 ON A1.EntityID = A2.EntityID 

LEFT JOIN ( SELECT EntityID,RowNumber,CAST(DetailValue AS datetime) AS [Loan Date]

your code seems cut off, as the last LEFT JOIN does not have any ON <condition> part?!

anyhow, please avoid doing those subselects... unless you really use CTE expressions.

see here how you can make that much easier to read and usually also more performant:
CREATE VIEW [dbo].[vPVTDetail] AS  

SELECT A1.EntityID, A1.EntityName [PVT Loan Name]

, CAST(A2.DetailValue AS int) ParentEntityID

, A2.EntityName [Base]

, CAST(A3.DetailValue AS datetime) [Loan Date]

... etc .

FROM ( SELECT EntityID, AS [PVT Loan Name] 

FROM dbo._EntityName A1

LEFT JOIN dbo._DetailsEntity A2

  ON A1.EntityID = A2.EntityID 

 AND A2.FieldID = 9320

LEFT JOIN dbo._DetailsVarchar A3

  ON A1.EntityID = A3.EntityID 

 AND A3.FieldID = 9438

... etc ...
 

WHERE A1.EntityType = 105 

  AND A1.IsDeleted = 0

Thank you so much for your speedy reply. Although your suggestion to rewrite would probably be a fantastic idea, I was able to find the boo-boos that produced the errors. The error text did not reference where the typos were, making things difficult.

"A379.EntityID" turned out to be "A37.EntityID"
AND
I had two instances of "A46.EntityID"
