sql 2012 syntax

Posted on 2016-07-20

Hi Folks
I have to maintain some old embedded SQL code (see section-3 below). It has redundant join syntax, so I replaced it with section-2 below.
When I do the (SQL Server 2012) syntax check all is good.
When I execute the query I get an error (1 below). 'APOpen' is a valid table.
thanks in advance

1.
Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Invalid object name 'APOpen'

----------------------------------------------------
2.
select APPayments.ApplyToID,isnull(max(APOpen.InvoiceID),'Other') InvoiceID,isnull(max(APOpen.POID),'Amount') POID,
sum(case when APOpen.trxtype = 1 or APOpen.trxtype = 4 or APOpen.trxtype = 6 then (APOpen.docAmount + APOpen.docOther + APPayments.MiscAmount) else 0 end) as DocAmount,
sum(case when APOpen.trxtype = 1 or APOpen.trxtype = 4 or APOpen.trxtype = 6 then (APOpen.docAmount) else 0 end) as USInvoiceAmount,
sum(case when APOpen.trxtype = 1 or APOpen.trxtype = 4 or APOpen.trxtype = 6 then (APOpen.docOther) else 0 end) as USExchange,
sum(case when APOpen.trxtype = 2 or APOpen.trxtype = 3 then (APOpen.docAmount + APOpen.docOther) else 0 end) as LessDebits,
(APPayments.AppliedAmount + APPayments.MiscAmount) as AppliedAmount,APPayments.ActualApplied,APPayments.Discount,APPayments.MiscAmount,APPayments.CheckAmount
from APOpen INNER JOIN APPayments ON APOpen.ApplytoId = APPayments.ApplytoId  
Where APOpen.vendid = 9500 and printedflag = '0' group by APPayments.ApplyToID, APPayments.AppliedAmount, APPayments.ActualApplied, APPayments.Discount, APPayments.MiscAmount, APPayments.CheckAmount
order by APOpen.DocAmount

----------------------------------------------

sqlCode = "select P.ApplyToID,isnull(max(O.InvoiceID),'Other') InvoiceID,isnull(max(O.POID),'Amount') POID," & _

@sql 2012 syntax - Did you make  sure that you are selecting from the correct database? Try adding  "USE YourDatabaseNameHere" before your select statement.

Thanks for your input Lajuan.
when I re-opened and re-entered the query the error moved/changed and I had to add APOpen.DocAmount to the group by clause. now it works.
P.S. use database only really applies when you aren't working in the current database
cheers

>> I had to add APOpen.DocAmount to the group by clause

Surely because your ORDER BY has "order by O.DocAmount" which should surely read as  "order by DocAmount" which is the alias of your summed field. Then you should be able to remove that field as well from the GROUP By clause.

the syntax checker gave an invalid error until the utility was reloaded and indicated a missing 'order by'.
Lajuan's comment is valid under different circumstances, but not when the query is run via VB/ADO or in the current database in Management Studio.
