Hello programmers.  I need a little help rewriting a query to SQL script.  The following Script is giving me the following errors.  Can someone help me identify a fix.  Thanks.

SCRIPT:
SELECT DISTINCT
'999998' AS exp1, oas_testit2.el1,
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual) AS SumOfActual,
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget) AS SumOfBudget,
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_Act) AS SumOfPrior_Act,
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual_YTD) AS SumOfActual_YTD,
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget_YTD) AS SumOfBudget_YTD,
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_YTD) AS SumOfPrior_YTD, oas_testit2.yr, oas_testit2.period, oas_testit2.base_grp
FROM oas_testit2
WHERE (((oas_testit2.el2)<>'999999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'299999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'399999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'003035'
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999994' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999995' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999996' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999997'
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990100' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990200' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990300' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990400'
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990500' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990600' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990700' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990800'))
GROUP BY '999998', oas_testit2.el1, oas_testit2.yr, oas_testit2.period, oas_testit2.base_grp
HAVING (((oas_testit2.el1)<>'44949' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44959' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44969' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44979'
And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44989' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44999' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'49999' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44919'))

ERRORS:
Server: Msg 164, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
GROUP BY expressions must refer to column names that appear in the select list.
Server: Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 15

You are trying to group by colums you aren't selecting:

What does this yield?
SELECT DISTINCT
'999998' AS exp1, oas_testit2.el1, 
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual) AS SumOfActual, 
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget) AS SumOfBudget, 
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_Act) AS SumOfPrior_Act, 
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual_YTD) AS SumOfActual_YTD, 
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget_YTD) AS SumOfBudget_YTD, 
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_YTD) AS SumOfPrior_YTD, oas_testit2.yr, oas_testit2.period, oas_testit2.base_grp
FROM oas_testit2
WHERE (((oas_testit2.el2)<>'999999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'299999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'399999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'003035' 
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999994' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999995' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999996' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999997' 
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990100' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990200' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990300' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990400' 
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990500' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990600' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990700' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'990800'))
GROUP BY '999998', oas_testit2.el1
 
HAVING (((oas_testit2.el1)<>'44949' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44959' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44969' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44979' 
And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44989' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44999' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'49999' And (oas_testit2.el1)<>'44919'))

Thanks Brandon I had just figured it out.  your script did not work, but this script that I changed to did.

CORRECTED SCRIPT:
SELECT DISTINCT

Sum(oas_testit2.Actual) AS SumOfActual,
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget) AS SumOfBudget,
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_Act) AS SumOfPrior_Act,
Sum(oas_testit2.Actual_YTD) AS SumOfActual_YTD,
Sum(oas_testit2.Budget_YTD) AS SumOfBudget_YTD,
Sum(oas_testit2.Prior_YTD) AS SumOfPrior_YTD, oas_testit2.yr, oas_testit2.period, oas_testit2.base_grp
FROM oas_testit2
WHERE (((oas_testit2.el2)<>'999999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'299999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'399999' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'003035'
And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999994' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999995' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999996' And (oas_testit2.el2)<>'999997'
