Any headsup?

SELECT *
FROM
(
       SELECT *,ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY [ID] ORDER BY [Date] DESC) [Order]  
       FROM
       (
              SELECT

                     A.[ID],
                     B.[UID],
                     C.[Date] 
              FROM Sample_1 A
              FULL JOIN Sample_2 B
              ON A.[ID] = B.[ID]
              FULL JOIN Sample_3 C
              ON A.[ID] = C.[ID]
              WHERE A.[SourceFile] BETWEEN 1 AND 100
              order by [ID]
       ) a
       WHERE [Date] < '2018/02/16' 
) b
WHERE [Order] = 1  
ORDER BY [ID],[Date]

Try this instead as ORDER BY clause is invalid in views, inline functions, derived tables, subqueries, and common table expressions

SELECT *
FROM
(
       SELECT *,ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY [ID] ORDER BY [Date] DESC) [Order]  
       FROM
       (
              SELECT

                     A.[ID],
                     B.[UID],
                     C.[Date] 
              FROM Sample_1 A
              FULL JOIN Sample_2 B
              ON A.[ID] = B.[ID]
              FULL JOIN Sample_3 C
              ON A.[ID] = C.[ID]
              WHERE A.[SourceFile] BETWEEN 1 AND 100
              --order by [ID] (this is the cause of the error) 
       ) a
       WHERE [Date] < '2018/02/16' 
) b
WHERE [Order] = 1  
ORDER BY [ID],[Date]

SQL Problem "The ORDER BY clause is invalid in views", As stated ORDER BY must not apper in subqueries unless TOP or FOR XML is used. SELECT TOP 10 * FROM ( SELECT c.id, c.name, c.inserteddate,  The ORDER BY clause is invalid in views, inline functions, derived tables, subqueries, and common table expressions, unless TOP, OFFSET or FOR XML is also specified.


agree with @Sparky in my case with this sql today.

d_e62 <- db_read(con, 
"select top 100 percent
campus2,
avg(fg) as mfg,
avg(cpw) as mcpw,
avg(LOS) as mlos

from
danall

where
ARDRG70 like 'E62%'
and w22wiesfund = 'Y'

group by
campus2

order by campus2")

The top 100 percent let me include order by otherwise getting that above error.

ORDER BY Does Not Work – Limitation of the Views , The ORDER BY clause is invalid in views, inline functions, derived tables, subqueries, and common table expressions, unless TOP or FOR XML  The ORDER BY clause is invalid in views, inline functions, derived tables, subqueries, and common table expressions, unless TOP, OFFSET or FOR XML is also specified. But to get around this, for years people have been putting a TOP 100 PERCENTin the view as well as the ORDER BY. At that point the view works.


Seems there is some confusion as to my answer. I am suggesting that the op adds the select top 100 percent * to allow the view to be created. I am not suggesting they remove the order by

See example below

create view dbo.TestView1
as
select * from ls.models order by model_number
-- The ORDER BY clause is invalid in views, inline functions, derived tables, subqueries, and common table expressions, unless TOP, OFFSET or FOR XML is also specified.
go
create view dbo.TestView2
as
select top 100 percent * from ls.models order by model_number
go
select * from dbo.TestView2

To fix the "issue", use the following code snippet

 SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT 
                     A.[ID],
                     B.[UID],
                     C.[Date] 
              FROM Sample_1 A
              FULL JOIN Sample_2 B
              ON A.[ID] = B.[ID]
              FULL JOIN Sample_3 C
              ON A.[ID] = C.[ID]
              WHERE A.[SourceFile] BETWEEN 1 AND 100
              order by [ID]
