An object or column name is missing or empty. For SELECT INTO statements, verify each column has a name. For other statements, look for empty alias names. Aliases defined as "" or [] are not allowed. Add a name or single space as the alias name.

You just need to run just that select statement in SSMS , check the resultset, put the column names for those columns which are missing the column names
