I have a MS SQL 2008 Query that I had someone make and I am trying to do a similar query with a different database and I just chaneged the field name.   But it is not working.  The Table is Called Orders and it has two field ChargedTotal and ShippingTotal.  I need a result that if I enter a date range that is will seperate each day out and Sum the totals for that day, or show a Null if nothing.

Here is what I have so far..

SELECT
CONVERT(varchar(6), MakeDates_2.thedate, 101) +
CONVERT(varchar(4), MakeDates_2.thedate, 120) AS DateTime,
CAST(SUM(S.ChargedTotal) AS int) AS ChargedTotal,
ROUND(SUM(S.ShippingTotal), 3) AS ShippingTotal

FROM MakeDates('1/1/2011', '12/23/2011') AS MakeDates_2

LEFT OUTER JOIN (SELECT PaymentReceived, ChargedTotal, ShippingTotal,
CAST(CONVERT(varchar(10), OrderDate, 120) AS datetime) AS DATETIME2

FROM Orders) AS S ON S.PaymentReceived LIKE 'yes' AND S.DATETIME2 = MakeDates_2.thedate
GROUP BY MakeDates_2.thedate
ORDER BY MakeDates_2.thedate

But I get the error:
Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
Invalid object name 'MakeDates'.

Did you create function MakeDates for this query?

MakeDates appears to be a Table Valued function.  Make sure it exists in your current database and that you prefix it with the correct schema (possibly dbo).
