syntax error in MSSQL Stored Procedure

Hi,
Attached you will find a stored procedure. All I want to do is add a new column to the create table but it keeps complaining the column is invalid name.  I have tried different names but it still gives the error. Any help at this hour would be greatly appreciated.

I can not see the name of the table you are creating:
create table
(  Emplid nvarchar (7) NOT NULL ,
   divisionID nvarchar (2)  NOT NULL ,...

Should it not be:
create table PS_Slic_Employee_Data
(  Emplid nvarchar (7) NOT NULL ,
   divisionID nvarchar (2)  NOT NULL ,...


If the table already exists, you will need to drop it first. I see you are truncating the table so the data loss in a drop table command will not be a problem

Besides, you're missing a name for your table in the Create table script are you sure this isn't the actual cause of your error?

Hi,

I am trying to add  

Stat_Date datetime NOT NULL.   which is  for Start Date but I changed the name.

Sorry, I already had added the table name but did not put it in the upload.

Thanks,
Nigluc

so is the code you have attached the code that gives an error?

This works just fine for me, what is the exact error and are you certain it is due to the Create table?
create table MyTable
(  Emplid nvarchar (7) NOT NULL ,
   divisionID nvarchar (2)  NOT NULL ,
   Surname nvarchar (30) NOT NULL,
   First_Name nvarchar (30) NOT NULL,
   Term nvarchar (5) NOT NULL ,
   Course nvarchar (10)  NOT NULL ,
   SWF_Section_Size int NULL  ,
   Classification nvarchar(3), 
   End_Date datetime NOT NULL ,
   Start_Date datetime NOT NULL,
   Sect nvarchar (2) NULL ,
   Assigned_Teaching_Hours_TCH int NULL,
   Preparation nvarchar(3) Null,
   Evaluation nvarchar (3) NULL,
   TCW  int NOT Null,
   Course_Preps  int NULL,
   TCH_Sum int Null
)

Thank you to both,

I had renamed the table so the Table Create X was not the same as what I was inserting into and it gave a misleading error.
