I am just learning how to use SQL 2005 and my first program is not working.  My operating system is windows XP and I downloaded SQL 2005 free trail from the web site.  When I executed my program I received a list of errors:
Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 8
Line 8: Incorrect syntax near 'NAME'.
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 5
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'Table'.
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 24
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'Table'.
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 28
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'TABLE'.

I am unable to figure out what is wrong.
My code is below.  Any help will be most appreciated.

CREATE DATABASE Kudler_Fine_Foods
      (
      NAME='Kudler_Fine_Foods',

You can view the syntax for creating databases here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms176061.aspx


CREATE DATABASE Kudler_Fine_Foods
on      (
      NAME='Kudler_Fine_Foods',
      FILENAME='H:\SQLData\KudlerFineFoods.mdf',
      SIZE=1000KB,
      MAXSIZE=1GB,
      FILEGROWTH=1000KB
      )
LOG ON
      (
      NAME='Kudler_Fine_Foods',
      FILENAME='H:\SQLData\KudlerFineFoods_LOG.LDF',
      SIZE=1000KB,
      MAXSIZE=1GB,
      FILEGROWTH=1000KB
      )
GO

 CREATE TABLE Job_Title TABLE
should be  
CREATE TABLE Job_Title

TABLE goes before, not after

don't put numeric values

 INSERT INTO [Kudler_Fine_Foods].[dbo].[Employee]
 (
       [Employee_ID], [Last_Name], [First_Name], [Address], [City], [State],
 [Telephone_area_code], [.....n], [Telephone_number], [EEO-1
 Classification], [....n], [Hire_date], [Salary], [Gender], [Age], [Job
 Title]
 )
 VALUES
 (
       '1', ....

in quotes

 INSERT INTO [Kudler_Fine_Foods].[dbo].[Employee]
 (
       [Employee_ID], [Last_Name], [First_Name], [Address], [City], [State],
 [Telephone_area_code], [.....n], [Telephone_number], [EEO-1

So if I am reading correctly I need a add

CREATE DATABASE database_name
    [ ON
        [ PRIMARY ] [ <filespec> [ ,...n ]
        [ , <filegroup> [ ,...n ] ]
    [ LOG ON { <filespec> [ ,...n ] } ]
    ]
    [ COLLATE collation_name ]
    [ WITH <external_access_option> ]
]
[;]

To attach a database
CREATE DATABASE database_name
    ON <filespec> [ ,...n ]
    FOR { ATTACH [ WITH <service_broker_option> ]
        | ATTACH_REBUILD_LOG }
[;]

in front of my program?

I'm not sure your use of the word "program" is correct.  What you are writing is a SQL script.
