You forgot to give the subquery a name - simply add a letter at the very end of your query!

select	x.BusinessEntityID, 
		x.Rate, 
		x.NtileRanking, 
		rank() Over(partition by x.NtileRanking 
			order by x.Rate desc) as 'RankingWithinNtile'
from (	select	/*BusinessEntityID*/ 1 as 'BusinessEntityID', 
				Rate, 
				Ntile(4) over (Order by Rate Desc) as 'NtileRanking'
		from HumanResources.EmployeePayHistory	) x

Open in new window


I've put in the alias references to show why they're needed, but actually T-SQL will default to them.
