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

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"
