I attached some code:  When it gets run I get a error

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 9
Incorrect syntax near 'Category_ID'.

Why?


WITH CTE AS(
SELECT Category_ID, Category_Name, Parent_Category_ID, convert(varchar(max),Category_Name) Tree
  FROM Categories
 WHERE Parent_Category_ID is null
 UNION ALL
SELECT c.Category_ID, c.Category_Name, c.Parent_Category_ID, p.Tree + ' / ' + convert(varchar(max),c.Category_Name)
  FROM Categories c
  JOIN CTE p
    ON c.Parent_Category_ID = p.Category_ID

this should do:
WITH CTE AS(
SELECT Category_ID, Category_Name, Parent_Category_ID, convert(varchar(max),Category_Name) Tree
  FROM Categories
 WHERE Parent_Category_ID is null
 UNION ALL
SELECT c.Category_ID, c.Category_Name, c.Parent_Category_ID, p.Tree + ' / ' + convert(varchar(max),c.Category_Name)
  FROM Categories c
  JOIN CTE p
    ON c.Parent_Category_ID = p.Category_ID
)
select * from data

I believe it may be because you have not closed your parenthesis.

fixing syntax will not help you... what are you trying to achieve here...

try fixing one by one

with cte as (
....  -- first run this part to see if you get desired values
)

then run

with cte as (...)
select * from categories c join cte ON cteParent_Category_ID = c.Category_ID
