SQL Query between two tables

Greetings,
I am trying to use the following query to draw out articles from one table based on their date and a keyword and then sort through the description column in the article table looking for international cities to tie that article to.  For instance:

SELECT  Article.Date, Article.Title, Article.Link, City.City, City.Latitude, City.Longitude FROM Article INNER JOIN City
ON City.City Like '%' + Article.Description + '%' WHERE Article.IndexGUID='f50c528b-230f-4732-b3a9-138c7af039c2' AND
Article.Date BETWEEN '1/1/2012' AND '3/1/2012' AND Article.Title LIKE '%computer%' GROUP BY Article.Date, Article.Title,
Article.Link, City.City, City.Latitude, City.Longitude ORDER BY Article.Date DESC

For some reason this query doesn't work.  Any help would be extremely appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

you are doing group by and no aggregate function is used in select statement.
please re-check what you are trying to achieve here...

Try this:-

SELECT  Article.Date, Article.Title, Article.Link, City.City, City.Latitude, City.Longitude FROM Article left outer JOIN City
ON City.City Like '%' + Article.Description + '%' WHERE Article.IndexGUID='f50c528b-230f-4732-b3a9-138c7af039c2' AND
Article.Date BETWEEN '1/1/2012' AND '3/1/2012' AND Article.Title LIKE '%computer%' 
ORDER BY Article.Date DESC
