I need to find the max time difference between two times.
I am getting an aggregate error.
SELECT CLE_IDX_CHAN, COUNT(CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK) ''Call Count'', SUM(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)) ''Seconds'',
            CONVERT(VARCHAR(12),DATEADD(ss, AVG(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)), CAST(0 AS DATETIME)),8) ''Avg Length'',
            CONVERT(VARCHAR(12),DATEADD(ss, SUM(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)), CAST(0 AS DATETIME)),8) ''Total Length'',
            MAX(CONVERT(VARCHAR(12),DATEADD(ss, SUM(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)), CAST(0 AS DATETIME)),8) )
            FROM CL_EVENTS_IDX WITH (NOLOCK)
                  INNER JOIN CL_EVENTS A WITH (NOLOCK) ON CLE_IDX_KEY = CLE_ID
                  INNER JOIN UTILITY_INFO WITH (NOLOCK) ON CLE_IDX_UCODE = UTILITY_KEY
                  INNER JOIN CL_EVENTS B WITH (NOLOCK) ON A.CLE_ID = B.CLE_ID AND A.CLE_CALLID = B.CLE_CALLID
                  INNER JOIN CL_APPID_XREF WITH (NOLOCK) on A.CLE_EVID = CLX_APPID
            WHERE A.CLE_TYPE = 508 AND B.CLE_TYPE = 536 and a.CLE_EVID = b.CLE_EVID
                  AND (A.CLE_EVID = 1 OR  A.CLE_EVID = 13)
            Group BY CLE_IDX_CHAN

The two lines beginning with CONVERT are not valid aggregations for a group by statement:

CONVERT(VARCHAR(12),DATEADD(ss, AVG(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)), CAST(0 AS DATETIME)),8) ''Avg Length'',

Those are not giving me an issue. It is when I add the

 MAX(CONVERT(VARCHAR(12),DATEADD(ss, SUM(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)), CAST(0 AS DATETIME)),8) )

Line that I begin to get the problem.

Hi ,

Try this:
select
	cs.CLE_IDX_CHAN
	, cs.callcount as 'Call Count'
	, cs.seconds as seconds
	, convert( varchar( 12 ), dateadd( ss, cs.AvgLength, 0 ), 8 ) as 'Average Length'
	, convert( varchar( 12 ), dateadd( ss, cs.seconds, 0 ), 8 ) as 'Total Length'
	, convert( varchar( 12 ), dateadd( ss, cs.MaxLength, 0 ), 8 ) as 'Max Length'
from (
	SELECT 
		CLE_IDX_CHAN
		, COUNT(CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK) 'CallCount'
		, SUM(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)) 'Seconds'
		, AVG(DATEDIFF(ss, CLE_IDX_OFFHOOK, CLE_IDX_ONHOOK)) 'AvgLength'
		, max( datefidd( ss, cle_idx_offhook, cle_idx_onhook )) 'MaxLength'
	FROM CL_EVENTS_IDX WITH (NOLOCK)
	INNER JOIN CL_EVENTS A WITH (NOLOCK) 
		ON CLE_IDX_KEY = CLE_ID
	INNER JOIN UTILITY_INFO WITH (NOLOCK) 
		ON CLE_IDX_UCODE = UTILITY_KEY
	INNER JOIN CL_EVENTS B WITH (NOLOCK) 
		ON A.CLE_ID = B.CLE_ID 
		AND A.CLE_CALLID = B.CLE_CALLID
		and a.CLE_EVID = b.CLE_EVID
	INNER JOIN CL_APPID_XREF WITH (NOLOCK) 
		on A.CLE_EVID = CLX_APPID
	WHERE 
		A.CLE_TYPE = 508 
		AND B.CLE_TYPE = 536 
		AND (A.CLE_EVID = 1 OR  A.CLE_EVID = 13)
	Group BY 
		CLE_IDX_CHAN 
	) cs
;

What I've done:
Moved a line from the where clause to the join of cl_events
Moved the converts to varchar etc to an outer query
Left an inner query with the group by

You can't do a MAX() of a SUM() in SQL Server; you can't embed any of the aggregate functions within each other.
