One too many right parenthesis.  :)

Remove the last one (right before the terminating colon).


Good Luck!

For starters...

1.

What's the purpose of DROP/CREATE, when you can TRUNCATE TABLE to remove all rows, then avoid having to re-define the schema of the table?

2.

Your code would be much more readable if it were indented.  

3.

For the columns that have both * and +, be VERY careful that the order of precedence is exactly what you want, meaning use parenteses marks ( ) to state the order, such as (2 * 3) + 4 = 10, but 2 + (3 * 4) = 24.

4.

Way to many unnecessary parenteses marks in the WHERE clause.  Was this query designed by a wizard?  

5.

AND Job.offlocationdatetime BETWEEN  '2015-02-01 00:00:00' AND '2015-02-28 23:59:59'

   Try this (See Beware of Between)
   Job.offlocationdatetime >='2015-02-01' AND Job.offlocationdatetime < '2015-03-01'

6.

It's really not necessary to add an ORDER BY to the statement that populates a table, when your return set has the same ORDER BY.  I'd get rid of the ORDER BY in the first statement.

The CREATE TABLE syntax with the sub-query approach is incorrect. For this case exists

SELECT columnlist INTO tableToCreate FROM table;

Please qualify all columns with the table name or table alias. I'd prefer also using always an alias.

You can't use the ORDER BY in the CREATE TABLE statement. Also as Jim said, you won't need it since the SELECT has an ORDER BY clause.
Even if you want to use the ORDER BY clause then you need to get rid of the CREATE TABLE statement and change the SELECT to a SELECT INTO statement:
 USE firetalk_test

SELECT Job.Jobid,         
 Job.company,         
 Job.rig,         
 Job.rignumber,         
 Job.wellname,         
 Job.onlocationdatetime,         
 Job.offlocationdatetime,         
 sfrentaldays * sfrentalrate + wfrentaldays * wfrentalrate + rigupcharge +          
 rigdowncharge + numberoftools * toolredresscharge +          
 sfinsurancedays * sfinsurancerate + wfinsurancedays * wfinsurancerate +          
 servicemandays * servicemanrate - creditdays * creditrate + othercharges + 
 SFStandByDays * SFStandByRate + WFStandByDays * WFStandByRate  AS   Total

 OR  ( ( ( Job.Jobcomplete ) = 1 ) AND ( ( JobRentalTicket.InvoicePaid ) = 0 ) )            
 AND Job.offlocationdatetime BETWEEN  '2015-02-01 00:00:00' AND '2015-02-28 23:59:59' 
ORDER BY Job.company 

 Select * From Temp_x ORDER BY company ASC

okay, in which SQL dialect is this correct syntax:

CREATE TABLE tablename AS ( SELECT columnlist FROM tableexpression );
