Here is the query:
select ct.OrderTypeID,ProductName,sum(OrdersOfferedHalf) Offered,sum(OrdersHandledHalf) Handled,from Order_Type ct, Order_Type_Half_Hour cthh
left outer join cthh on Order_Type_Half_Hour.OrderTypeID = ct.OrderTypeID
where DateTime > '" & Range("testStart") & "' and DateTime < '" & Range("testEnd") &
and ct.OrderTypeID in (" & Range("queryOrderTypes") & ") ' value from excel
group by ct.OrderTypeID, ct.ProductName

Is there a field in the ORDER_TYPE table called OrderTypeID?

Yes, there is. It was working in SQL 2000 where I had to remove the old join condition syntax for 2000 and replace with left outer join to make it work on 2005 and then got this error

You have quotes and ampersands in the query that suggests it is being called from VB or as some other program as a dynamically generated SQL string; therefore, please post the entire code where you are setting the SQL string variable. The issue is likely in another part of the code ... although there are some type-o's in the above; however, I don't want to waste your time on those if it is a copy and paste issue given only partial code is included.

Okay, please try with the following changes:

select ct.OrderTypeID, ProductName
     /* ... */
from Order_Type ct
left outer join Order_Type_Half_Hour cthh
   on cthh.OrderTypeID = ct.OrderTypeID

where [DateTime] > '9/4/2011' and [DateTime] < dateadd(d,7,'9/4/2011')
and ct.OrderTypeID in (5001 /*...*/)
group by ct.OrderTypeID, ct.ProductName
order by OrderTypeID

This query was working before in 2000 with same code. The old query was. I just need to make it run on 2005: The difference between the 2 queries is highlighted in bold.

select ct.OrderTypeID, ProductName, sum(OrderOfferedHalf) Offered, sum(OrderHandledHalf) Handled, sum(AbandInterval1)+sum(AbandInterval2)+sum(AbandInterval3)+sum(AbandInterval4)+sum(AbandInterval5)+sum(AbandInterval6)+sum(AbandInterval7)+sum(AbandInterval8)+sum(AbandInterval9)+sum(AbandInterval10)-sum(ServiceLevelAbandHalf) Aband, sum(OrderRONAToHalf) RONA, sum(ErrorCountToHalf) Err, sum(OrderAnsweredToHalf) Ans, sum(HandleTimeHalf) HandleTime, sum(TalkTimeHalf) TalkTime, sum(RouterQueueWaitTimeToHalf) QWaitTime, sum(RouterQueueOrderToHalf) QOrder, sum(ServiceLevelAbandHalf) AbandLTSL from Order_Type ct, Order_Type_Half_Hour cthh where DateTime > '9/14/2011' and DateTime < dateadd(d,7,'9/14/2011') and ct.OrderTypeID *= cthh.OrderTypeID and ct.OrderTypeID in (5001,5003,5010,5012,5013,5015,5030,5032,5033,5035,5036,5037,5038,5040,5042,5043,5044,5045,5047,5048,5050,5051,5052,5053,5054,5055,5056,5057,5058,5059,5060,5061,5062,5063,5064,5065,5066,5004,5006,5362)

In non-ansi SQL world a *= b is a left join construct. So look at http:#a36539827 and you will see in bold what that translate to using ansi SQL joins. Make those changes to your query and see what happens, please. :)
