This sql, makes an sql error.
 "select a.navn, (select count(navn) from produkt) as counter from produkt as a "
It dosent seem to work with my sdf database in webmatrix.
Is it possible that select in select is not supportet?

What are you trying to do and what's the error message?
Maybe this alternative query is what you are looking for?
select navn, count(navn) as counter 
from product
group by navn

It´s just an example. The select in select is an other table off couse.

System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeException: There was an error parsing the query

Can't you post the real query?
That error means you have something written that MSSQL doesn't understand. Maybe some column or table name with space (then you need to use brackets to enclose the column/table name) or you are using some reserved word as column or table name.
