Try this, you are missing a comma:
SELECT     p21_sales_history_view.salesrep_id, 
                      p21_sales_history_view.salesrep_first_name + ' ' + p21_sales_history_view.salesrep_last_name AS [Sales Rep], p21_item_view.upc_code, 
                      p21_sales_history_view.cogs_amount, MAX(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),(p21_sales_history_view.invoice_date),101) AS [Sales Date]
FROM         p21_sales_history_view INNER JOIN
                      p21_item_view ON p21_sales_history_view.item_id = p21_item_view.item_id
WHERE     (p21_sales_history_view.supplier_id IN (101127, 105144, 101942, 101427, 101324, 101351, 101637, 101615, 101120, 101315))
GROUP BY p21_sales_history_view.salesrep_id, p21_item_view.upc_code, p21_sales_history_view.cogs_amount, p21_sales_history_view.supplier_id, 
                      p21_sales_history_view.salesrep_first_name + ' ' + p21_sales_history_view.salesrep_last_name
