Hello there,

I have this query and I get this error when I run it
Invalid column name 'province'.

 SELECT * FROM (SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY province) AS rowID FROM (SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT  
			province.capital,
    province.code,
    province.telcode,
    province.taxcode,
    county.countyname as county,
    district.districtname as district,
    zone.alternateName as zone,
    neighbourhood.alternateName as neigbhour,
    city.cityname as city,
    city.fdocode 
			 FROM 
				province
				JOIN county ON province.Id = county.provinceId
				JOIN district ON district.countyId = county.Id
				JOIN city ON city.districtId = district.Id
				JOIN zone ON zone.cityId = city.Id
				JOIN neighbourhood ON neighbourhood.zoneId = zone.Id

Looks like province is a table and you are using it in the ORDER BY clause.
Verify the line SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY province) AS rowID and check which column should be used in the ORDER BY clause

province is a table name, in the first place, so if that (or another table) also has a column name province, you need to write this in the query for the column province.province
which also brings up this article I wrote: use aliases in your queries:
