can anybody tell and correct why this script:

RESTORE DATABASE JTS
FROM DISK = 'E:\JTS_backup.bak'
WITH Replace,
MOVE 'JTSData.mdf' TO 'G\databases\JTS.mdf'
MOVE 'JTSData.log' TO 'G\Databases\JTS.ldf'

is giving this error:
Incorrect syntax near 'MOVE'.

Thanks

I assume you are missing the : for G:\...
RESTORE DATABASE JTS
FROM DISK = 'E:\JTS_backup.bak'
WITH Replace,
MOVE 'JTSData.mdf' TO 'G:\databases\JTS.mdf'
MOVE 'JTSData.log' TO 'G:\Databases\JTS.ldf'

missing a comma:

RESTORE DATABASE JTS
FROM DISK = 'E:\JTS_backup.bak'
WITH Replace,
MOVE 'JTSData.mdf' TO 'G:\databases\JTS.mdf',
MOVE 'JTSData.log' TO 'G:\Databases\JTS.ldf'

RQuadling, you are correct, the author was missing the :  But, that wasn't what caused this error...it would have caused an error later down the road once the syntax was confirmed. :)
