select max(isnull(dateentered,(select dateordered from orders where orderid=70194))) from payments where orderid=70194

Msg 130, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Cannot perform an aggregate function on an expression containing an aggregate or a subquery.


I think you copy paste the same query
minus the as paymentdate

but I need the 'as paymentdate'

try this.
SELECT ISNULL((SELECT MAX(dateentered) 
                 FROM payments 
                WHERE orderid = o.orderid),(SELECT TOP 1 dateordered 
                                              FROM orders 
                                             WHERE orderid = o.orderid)) AS paymentdate
