Dear experts,

I am using SQL  Server 2005 to code the following query but I just kept getting the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near 'a'.

What am I doing wrong?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
SELECT 
  (SELECT COUNT(*)FROM tblMaster a,tblCODE cWHERE a.chsid=c.chsid and (c.Close_EmployedWhenReleased)='Y' and c. Start_Date > NULL and c. Start_Date < NULL and c. Close_Date > NULL and c.Close_Date < NULL ) AS A, 
 
(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tblMaster a, tblCODE c WHERE a.chsid=c.chsid and UPPER(c.Close_RecvdJobTraining)='Y' and c.Start_Date > NULL and c. Start_Date < NULL and c.Close_Date > NULL and c. Close_Date < NULL ) AS B,
 
 (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM tblMaster a, tblCODE c WHERE a.chsid=c.chsid and UPPER(c.Close_OffPublicAssistance)='YES' and c. Start_Date > NULL and c.Setup_ Start_Date < NULL and c. Close_Date > NULL and c. Close_Date < NULL ) AS C

line 2:

 (SELECT COUNT(*)FROM tblMaster a,tblCODE cWHERE a.chsid=c.chsid and (c.Close_EmployedWhenReleased)='Y' and c. Start_Date > NULL and c. Start_Date < NULL and c. Close_Date > NULL and c.Close_Date < NULL ) AS A,

should be:

 (SELECT COUNT(*)FROM tblMaster a,tblCODE c WHERE a.chsid=c.chsid and (c.Close_EmployedWhenReleased)='Y' and c. Start_Date > NULL and c. Start_Date < NULL and c. Close_Date > NULL and c.Close_Date < NULL ) AS A,

change:
"cWHERE" changed to "c where"

couple of things...

first, was here:  (*)FROM tblMaster a,tblCODE cWHERE a.chsid=c.

your c blended with your WHERE

second was here:
and c.Setup_Start_Date < NULL and c. Close_Date > NULL and c. Close_Date < NULL ) AS C

there was  space between c. and Close_Date
