Please note, the SQL is handled dynamically by the SQL server, therefore items in my WHERE clause will look odd to you. Please disregard this because this is not an issue.

I am getting the following error I need some help with.

Msg 306, Level 16, State 2, Line 5
The text, ntext, and image data types cannot be compared or sorted, except when using IS NULL or LIKE operator.

I don't know what variable you are using but, ou cannot GROUP BY on on TEXT, NTEXT.

To get around this, you can CAST your TEXT, NTEXT types to VARCHAR in the GROUP BY.
