Incorrect syntax near ','.

Hi all,
I use MS SQL Server. I don't know what I'm doing wrong in the following query.

I receive this error:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near ','.

select (table.isNegative, matchType.code,, status.code, keyword.lastUpdate, syncStatus.code)
from table kwd, matchType, keyword k, status, syncStatus
and kwd.umbrellaId=1080
and matchType.code='P'
and status.code='A'
and syncStatus.code='B';

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm going to guess that "table" is a reserved word in your database. (Do you really have a table named "table"?)

Found the problem! Needed to remove the open and close () from the beginning and end of SELECT statement which got rid of the first error. Then I got "cannot be bound" error which I resolved when I replaced the actual table names with the names which was defined in from statement: kwd for table and k for keyword.

Thanks anyway.
I agree. Here's the link:
