I have this SQL statement Which I'm getting a error when I try to execute.
SELECT        COUNT(*) AS TotalRecords
FROM            Expenses
WHERE        ([YEAR](PostDate) = [YEAR](@MyDate)) AND (MONTH(PostDate) = MONTH(@MyDate))

I'm Using a VistaDB which has the same syntax has SQL. Any Help would be appreciated.

What I have tried:

SELECT        COUNT(*) AS TotalRecords
FROM            Expenses
WHERE        ([YEAR](PostDate) = [YEAR](@MyDate)) AND (MONTH(PostDate) = MONTH(@MyDate))

SELECT COUNT(*) As [TotalRecords] --or "TotalRecords"
FROM Expenses
WHERE YEAR(PostDate) = YEAR(@MyDate) AND MONTH(PostDate) = MONTH(@MyDate)

See Date and Time Functions[^] :
- YEAR[^]
- MONTH[^]

In case of troubles with aliases, please read this: Getting Started - What's New - Version 5.0[^]

Parser Fix: Does not correctly parse certain 3-part column names like: [dbo].[MyTable].ColumnName
Parser Fix: SELECT improperly accepts other unquoted keywords as table or column alias and thus can fail to recognize the start of a new statement when an optional alias can follow if no semicolon is used to separate them.
