SSIS sql query error

WITH CTE AS ( SELECT
CONVERT(date, CONVERT(VARCHAR,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,23), 111) as data_date,
FROM [db_bis].[staging].[stg_iwmf_xls_ecn_log_epc1] WITH (NOLOCK)
),
CTE2 AS
( SELECT
*,
CASE
WHEN [client_approved_or_rejected] IS NOT NULL and [client_approved_or_rejected] IN ('In Discussion', 'Submitted') THEN datediff(day, [date_raised],data_date)
ELSE NULL
END as days_outstanding
FROM
CTE)

When I run this query in the SSIS sql command window, it gives me the error.

TITLE: Microsoft Visual Studio

Exception from HRESULT: 0xC0202009
Error at DFT - Insert into stg_iwmf_summary_ecn_log_epc1 [OLE_SRC - Get data from stg_iwmf_xls_ecn_log_epc1 [78]]: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80040E14.

what could be wrong? Any help

Try to run the query in SSMS, that will be easy to fix the syntax error.

You don't need the second CTE if the query in the second CTE outputs the data you want. There are several more issues. The first - and primary issue - is that the first CTE is only returning a single column and therefore any additional columns referenced in the second CTE are not going to be available.

The next issue is this statement:

CONVERT(date, CONVERT(VARCHAR,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,23), 111) as data_date,

Just cast/convert to a date:

CONVERT(date, CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) as data_date,
--CAST(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP AS date)

The next issue is the CASE expression - no need to check that the value is not null - if the value is null then it wouldn't be in the list and the THEN statement wouldn't be executed.

CASE
WHEN [client_approved_or_rejected] IS NOT NULL and [client_approved_or_rejected] IN ('In Discussion', 'Submitted') THEN datediff(day, [date_raised],data_date)
ELSE NULL
END as days_outstanding

to just this

CASE
WHEN [client_approved_or_rejected] IN ('In Discussion', 'Submitted') THEN datediff(day, [date_raised],data_date)
ELSE NULL
END as days_outstanding

And now we can simplify to this:

SELECT
*,
CASE
WHEN [client_approved_or_rejected] IN ('In Discussion', 'Submitted') THEN datediff(day, [date_raised], current_timestamp)
ELSE NULL
END as days_outstanding
FROM [db_bis].[staging].[stg_iwmf_xls_ecn_log_epc1] WITH (NOLOCK)

We can ignore the cast/convert to a date data type because the datediff will return the number of days difference regardless of the time component.
