in the GUI / query designer?
if yes, this comes, I think, from the subqueries and/or CASE statements.
it might also be reserved keywords, for example "level" or "Geometry" might require to be written like [LEVEL] and [Geometry]

you might also start using aliases to make your query easier to read:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Miscellaneous/A_11135-Why-should-I-use-aliases-in-my-queries.html

if the above does not help, try to use a normal query window to run the query.
if that works, it's definitively a limitation of the query designer window.
if there it still does not work, comment out parts of the query until it works, and then you can concentrate on the part that is indeed raising the issue

also try this
SELECT     dbo.Segment.ROADJUR, dbo.Segment.L_F_ADD, dbo.Segment.L_T_ADD, dbo.Segment.R_F_ADD, dbo.Segment.R_T_ADD, 
		dbo.Segment.Geometry,
		(SELECT LTRIM(RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Prefix_Full, '')))) + ' ' + 
		  (RTRIM(UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Street_Name, ''))))   + ' ' + 
		  (RTRIM (UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Suffix_Cnty, '')))) + '' +
		  (RTRIM (UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Suffix_Bell, '')))) + ' ' +
		  (RTRIM (UPPER(ISNULL(dbo.Street.Suffix_Direction, ''))))) AS Name,						  
		 w1.Ward_Name AS L_MUNAME,
		 w2.Ward_Name AS R_MUNAME, 
		CASE WHEN dbo.Segment.ROADJUR = 'KINGS' THEN 9 WHEN dbo.Segment.ROADJUR = 'CNTY' THEN 15 
WHEN dbo.Segment.ROADJUR = 'TWP' THEN 16 WHEN dbo.Segment.ROADJUR = 'PRIV' THEN 17 END AS [LEVEL]
FROM dbo.Segment 
LEFT JOIN dbo.Ward w1 ON  dbo.Segment.Left_Mun_ID = w1.Ward_ID 
LEFT JOIN dbo.ward w1 ON dbo.Segment.Right_Mun_ID = w2.Ward_ID 
INNER JOIN dbo.Street ON dbo.Segment.Street_ID = dbo.Street.Street_ID

A Wealth of knowledge as usual
Thanks guys

Is there a Huge advantage in using the
LEFT JOIN dbo.Ward w1 ON  dbo.Segment.Left_Mun_ID = w1.Ward_ID
LEFT JOIN dbo.ward w1 ON dbo.Segment.Right_Mun_ID = w2.Ward_ID

Compared to
Inner Join  dbo.Ward ON dbo.Segment.Left_Mun_ID = dbo.Ward.Ward_ID AND dbo.Segment.Right_Mun_ID = dbo.Ward.Ward_ID

Thanks

the 2 joins will make sure it will work, with 1 single join to "ward" you won't get any results UNLESS left_Mun_ID = Right_Mun_ID
