I have the following query:

SELECT DISTINCT [ScratchPad5].EmployeeNumber, Sum([ScratchPad5].totaltime),
case when ([hours]>40,[hours]-40,0) AS ot, case when ([hours]>40,[hours]-[ot],[hours]) AS RegHours

FROM ScratchPad5

GROUP BY [ScratchPad5].EmployeeNumber

and when I try to parse it, I get an error that there is an incorrect syntax near the comma on line 1. Can someone please assist me?

Thank you

case when [hours]>40 THEN [hours]-40 ELSE 0 END AS ot, case when [hours]>40 THEN [hours]-[ot] ELSE [hours] END AS RegHours
