What is wrong with the following INSERT statement to store mulitple values into 1 column?

I get the error:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 3
Incorrect syntax near ','.

INSERT INTO dbo.tblSpNY ( [Account Number] ) VALUES

you are using the SQL 2008 syntax that wont work on sql2005, use this instead
INSERT INTO dbo.tblSpNY ( [Account Number] )
SELECT  ' 574336551'
union all
select '12123123'
0

This doesn't work either:
INSERT INTO dbo.tblSpNY ( [Account Number] )
SELECT ' 574336551',
union all
SELECT ' 232053211'

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 3
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'union'.

Sorry

SELECT ' 574336551'   --- no need for the comma here
union all
SELECT ' 232053211'
0

I removed the comma. Now it works.

INSERT INTO dbo.tblSpNY ( [Account Number] )
SELECT ' 574336551'
union all
SELECT ' 232053211'
0
