select distinct top 1000 CarrierTrackingNumber
from Sales.SalesOrderDetail d
      join #Carriers c on d.CarrierTrackingNumber = c.CarrierTrackingNumber
where d.ProductID = 776

this is error:

for ambigous error
 

 change "select distinct top 1000 CarrierTrackingNumber " to

select distinct top 1000 d.CarrierTrackingNumber


for the collation error, you can redefine the temp table with proper collation , in this case SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

Ambiguous column name 'CarrierTrackingNumber'.
You need to add the table alias (c or d) in the SELECT statement. For example:

select distinct top 1000 d.CarrierTrackingNumber

The collation error means that you're database, table or column has a different collation from the SQL Server instance collation. This means that you need to explicitly say which collation that you want to use:

join #Carriers c on d.CarrierTrackingNumber = c.CarrierTrackingNumber COLLATE Modern_Spanish_CI_AS
