you cannot convert '$' symbol to decimal, change " [Sales Order $ to date]" column to Varchar(30)

OR remove the concatenation with '$' as you are building the temp table, but at output add the dollar symbol.

If you are doing calculations on those columns you would want to keep those fields as decimals I think.

Whichever logic you adopt, you will want to apply it consistently to the money fields:

          , [Sales Order $ to date] decimal(18, 2)
...
          , [Invoice $ to date] decimal(18, 2)
...
          , [Invoice $ Delta] decimal(18, 2)

Or use money/smallmoney data type, which will accept (but ignore) the '$', and will have 4 decimal places.
