I get the following error in the SQL Statement below

Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'Group'.

Select Phone, [First Name], [Machine operator],Sum([Drilled Total]) As [Total Drilled]
From Performance Inner Join People On [Machine operator] = [Operator COY]
Having Sum([Drilled Total]) > 100 And [Date] >= DATEADD(day,-30, getdate())
Group By Phone,[First Name],[Machine operator]

You're not allowed to have a non-aggregated expression ([Date] in this case) in a HAVING cluase.  Your [Date] expression must be specified in a WHERE clause.  Try the following:

SELECT
  [Phone],
  [First Name],
  [Machine operator],
  Sum([Drilled Total]) As [Total Drilled]
FROM
  Performance
 Inner Join
  People
 On [Machine operator] = [Operator COY]
WHERE
  {Date] >= DATEADD(day,-30, getdate())
HAVING
  Sum([Drilled Total]) > 100
GROUP BY
  [Phone],
  [First Name],
  [Machine operator]
 
I also suggest consistency in the use of the square brackets on column names as shown.

Best regards,

AielloJ

One modification from the above.  AielloJ is right, the non-grouped "date" column has to be in the where clause, not the having.
Only change, is "having" has to appear AFTER the group by:

Select Phone, [First Name], [Machine operator],Sum([Drilled Total]) As [Total Drilled]
From Performance Inner Join People On [Machine operator] = [Operator COY] 
Where [Date] >= DATEADD(day,-30, getdate())
Group By Phone,[First Name],[Machine operator] 
Having Sum([Drilled Total]) > 100
