I am having trouble figuring out how to order the following SQL query. When I add "order by H.Agency, H.ActivityType" at the end of the query I get a syntax error near keyword order. Please help!!

With CTE_Hours as (select distinct H.AgencyID, H.Agency,H.Hours, isnull(H.Classification,'') Classification, isnull(H.Objectives,'') Objectives,H.ActivityType,H.ActivityOther, H.Narrative,H.Outcome,H.Duration,H.Frequency,H.Strategy,H.Need,H.NeedOther, H.ActivityID, H.RegID , R.AgeCurrent, R.CommunityCommittee, R.YouthCommittee, R.Parentcheck, R.CommunityResident, R.Race, R.Gender, R.Sector , cast(H.ActivityDate as Date) ActivityDate, H.Fiscal from tblOrgHours H inner join tblOrgRegistrations R on H.Regid = R.RegID and R.AgeCurrent between 0 and 99 Where (H.Agency = 'Administrator' OR H.Agency = 'Chicago Area Project -') And H.Fiscal = 2019 And H.ActivityDate >= '07/01/2018' And H.ActivityDate < '12/31/2018' And R.RegDate >= '07/01/2018' And R.RegDate < '12/31/2018') select H.Agency ,A.ActivityName ,H.Classification ,H.ActivityDate ,H.Objectives ,H.Hours ,count(A.ActivityName) over (partition by H.Agency,A.ActivityName order by A.activityName) as [ActivityCount] ,Count(H.RegID) as [# individuals] ,H.[ActivityType],H.ActivityOther,H.Narrative,H.Outcome,H.Duration,H.Frequency,H.Strategy,H.Need,H.NeedOther ,COUNT(CASE when R.CommunityCommittee = '1' then 1 end) as [CommunityCommittee],COUNT(CASE when R.YouthCommittee = '1' then 1 end) as [YouthCommittee] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Parentcheck = '1' then 1 end) as [Parentcheck] ,COUNT(CASE when R.CommunityResident = '1' then 1 end) as [CommunityResident] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Business' then 1 end) as [Business] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Civic-Volunteer' then 1 end) as [Civic-Volunteer] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Community Resident' then 1 end) as [Community Resident] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Faith Based' then 1 end) as [Faith Based] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Healthcare' then 1 end) as [Healthcare],COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Human Support Agencies' then 1 end) as [Human Support Agencies] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Law Enforcement' then 1 end) as [Law Enforcement] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Local Government' then 1 end) as [Local Government] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Media' then 1 end) as [Media] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Parent or Guardian' then 1 end) as [Parent or Guardian] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Philanthropic' then 1 end) as [Philanthropic] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Schools' then 1 end) as [Schools] ,COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Youth' then 1 end) as [Youth] from CTE_Hours H inner join tblOrgRegistrations R on H.Regid = R.RegID inner join tblOrgActivities A on H.ActivityID = A.ActivityID group by H.Agency,H.Classification,H.Hours, A.ActivityName,H.ActivityDate, H.Objectives,H.ActivityType,H.ActivityOther,H.Narrative,H.Outcome,H.Duration,H.Frequency,H.Strategy,H.Need,H.NeedOther Order by H.Agency, H.Classification,A.ActivityName, H.ActivityDate order by H.ActivityType

You might want to format the SQL better to see things like this.

For example, here is how I noticed it. I formatted the SQL and indented. Once I got the to last order by, I noticed the extra one.

With CTE_Hours as ( select distinct H.AgencyID, H.Agency,H.Hours, isnull(H.Classification,'') Classification, isnull(H.Objectives,'') Objectives, H.ActivityType,H.ActivityOther, H.Narrative,H.Outcome,H.Duration,H.Frequency,H.Strategy,H.Need,H.NeedOther, H.ActivityID, H.RegID , R.AgeCurrent, R.CommunityCommittee, R.YouthCommittee, R.Parentcheck, R.CommunityResident, R.Race, R.Gender, R.Sector , ast(H.ActivityDate as Date) ActivityDate, H.Fiscal from tblOrgHours H inner join tblOrgRegistrations R on H.Regid = R.RegID and R.AgeCurrent between 0 and 99 Where (H.Agency = 'Administrator' OR H.Agency = 'Chicago Area Project -') And H.Fiscal = 2019 And H.ActivityDate >= '07/01/2018' And H.ActivityDate < '12/31/2018' And R.RegDate >= '07/01/2018' And R.RegDate < '12/31/2018')select H.Agency ,A.ActivityName ,H.Classification ,H.ActivityDate ,H.Objectives ,H.Hours , count(A.ActivityName) over (partition by H.Agency,A.ActivityName order by A.activityName) as [ActivityCount] , Count(H.RegID) as [# individuals] ,H.[ActivityType],H.ActivityOther,H.Narrative,H.Outcome,H.Duration,H.Frequency,H.Strategy,H.Need,H.NeedOther , COUNT(CASE when R.CommunityCommittee = '1' then 1 end) as [CommunityCommittee], COUNT(CASE when R.YouthCommittee = '1' then 1 end) as [YouthCommittee] , COUNT(CASE when R.Parentcheck = '1' then 1 end) as [Parentcheck] , COUNT(CASE when R.CommunityResident = '1' then 1 end) as [CommunityResident] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Business' then 1 end) as [Business] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Civic-Volunteer' then 1 end) as [Civic-Volunteer] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Community Resident' then 1 end) as [Community Resident] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Faith Based' then 1 end) as [Faith Based] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Healthcare' then 1 end) as [Healthcare], COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Human Support Agencies' then 1 end) as [Human Support Agencies] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Law Enforcement' then 1 end) as [Law Enforcement] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Local Government' then 1 end) as [Local Government] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Media' then 1 end) as [Media] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Parent or Guardian' then 1 end) as [Parent or Guardian] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Philanthropic' then 1 end) as [Philanthropic] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Schools' then 1 end) as [Schools] , COUNT(CASE when R.Sector = 'Youth' then 1 end) as [Youth] from CTE_Hours H inner join tblOrgRegistrations R on H.Regid = R.RegID inner join tblOrgActivities A on H.ActivityID = A.ActivityIDgroup by H.Agency,H.Classification,H.Hours, A.ActivityName,H.ActivityDate, H.Objectives,H.ActivityType,H.ActivityOther,H.Narrative,H.Outcome,H.Duration, H.Frequency,H.Strategy,H.Need,H.NeedOtherOrder by H.Agency, H.Classification,A.ActivityName, H.ActivityDateorder by H.ActivityType

I use poorsman sql formatter in notepad++, other editors have their own autoformat functions, those help a lot in this cases
