How to use Insert Into with a select query using proc sql

Hi All,

 

Based on this page: http://support.sas.com/kb/49/727.html

it has this code:

proc sql;
insert into ds1(id, name, address, phone)
select id, name, address, phone
from ds2;
quit;

 

 

So I modified it to use my tables and columns..

proc sql;
	INSERT INTO WORK.SQA_RESULTS(POLICY NUMBER, EVALUATEE_NAME)
	SELECT POLICY_NUMBER, EVALUATEE_NAME FROM WORK.APPEND_DATA;
quit;

 

It is coming up with ERROR 78-322: Expecting a ','

Shows the affected code is on INSERT INTO line

 

I can't figure out why it wouldn't work?
