If I am right...

You can use the CTE only after it's declared.

ie.,

With test as
(
Select ...
)

Only in one sql query you can refer CTE table after declaration.

So answer to question is it is not possible to do like that

So this will only work
Create Table #T1
(

)

With test as
(
Select ....
From
)

Insert into T1
Select
..
From test
UNION
Select
...
From
Table

;With test as 
(
Select 1 as T
)
insert into #T1
Select T From test
union
select 2 as T
