Hi experts,
I have the following error message
If this statement is a common table expression or an xmlnamespaces clause, the previous statement must be terminated with a semicolon
when i launch a query from my c# code. The same query works on sql server.
The query is
with a as (SELECT ROW_NUMBER()  OVER (ORDER BY xxx) AS num , * from dbo.xxx) select top (200) * from a as selezione

Change the query to the following:

;
with a as (SELECT ROW_NUMBER()  OVER (ORDER BY xxx) AS num , * from dbo.xxx) select top (200) * from a as selezione

Note the semicolon at the beginning. WITH clause has to be either first statement in the batch OR you need a semicolon just before it.
