I'm using this query to to calculate yearly finance values.

select [Year],[FinanceValue-2014],[FinanceValue-2013],[FinanceValue-2012],[FinanceValue- 2014]-[FinanceValue-2013] as [FinanceValue Variance]

Now I need to multiply the [FinanceValue Variance] * 2.50 and for that how can I use the alias name as column in the query. I tried this but it says invalid column name.

select [Year],[FinanceValue-2014],[FinanceValue-2013],[FinanceValue-2012],[FinanceValue- 2014]-[FinanceValue-2013] as [FinanceValue Variance], [FinanceValue Variance] * 2.50 as [NewVariance] from Finance

SumofVariance output will be like 5690.5893656 Also how can I show the SumofVariance to round off 4 decimal places like this 5690.5894. Really appreciate any help on this.

DECLARE @Table TABLE (Year INT,FinanceValue2005 INT,FinanceValue2004 INT,FinanceValue2003 INT)
INSERT INTO @Table VALUES(2011,100,90,80)

;With CTE([Year],FinanceValue2005,FinanceValue2004,FinanceValue2003,[FinanceValue Variance])
SELECT *,FinanceValue2005 - FinanceValue2004 AS [FinanceValue Variance] FROM @Table
SELECT *,[FinanceValue Variance] * 2.50 AS [New Variance] FROM CTE
