incorrect syntax near keyword AS

incorrect syntax near keyword AS

(OP)
Hello all,
I have been asked to modify this query and add the vendor name to it, the only problem is that when I put it into SSMS to work with it
I get the error of incorrect sytntax near the keyword as and when I take out ass I get an incorrect syntax near the key word 'from'
any help would be great as I am fighting a sinus infection and can barely hold my head up.

CODE -->

select top 100
 i.Item,
 i.Description,
 i.SPC,
 (select isnull(sum(invl.Quantity), 0) from ARInvoiceLine invl
  where invl.Item = i.Item and invl.DateAdded >= '01/01/2014' and invl.DateAdded <'12/30/2016'
  +
  (select isnull(sum(invlc.Quantity), 0) from ARInvoiceLineComponent invlc
   where invlc.Item = i.Item and invlc.DateAdded >= '01/01/2014' and invlc.DateAdded < '12/30/2016' as 'Qty Sold'
from IMItem i
where i.SPC like @SPC
order by 'Qty Sold' desc, i.Item 

RE: incorrect syntax near keyword AS

) is missing before the single + between the two subqueries and before "as 'Qty Sold'"

CODE

select top 100
 i.Item,
 i.Description,
 i.SPC,
 (select isnull(sum(invl.Quantity), 0) from ARInvoiceLine invl
  where invl.Item = i.Item and invl.DateAdded >= '01/01/2014' 
  and invl.DateAdded <'12/30/2016'  ) 
  +
  (select isnull(sum(invlc.Quantity), 0) from ARInvoiceLineComponent invlc
   where invlc.Item = i.Item and invlc.DateAdded >= '01/01/2014' 
   and invlc.DateAdded < '12/30/2016'  )  as 'Qty Sold'
from IMItem i
where i.SPC like @SPC
order by 'Qty Sold' desc, i.Item 

Besides, of course @SPC has to be declared and set to a value valid as a LIKE clause pattern.

Bye, Olaf.

Thanks! 

RE: incorrect syntax near keyword AS

You can't put an IF statement in the middle of a query. Try using CASE in the WHERE clause instead.

Hello everyone!
got out of the hospital on Sunday and it looks like I will have some challenges, but at least my thinking seems too have cleared up some and I figured out the problem.

Thanks for all the help and good wishs!
