Subject: SQL using WITH/AS

I've stared at this simple select statement until I've gotten a headache. It must be something simple that I've missed. This is the syntax:



WITH temp (balance,cus#) AS

(SELECT field1+field2+field3 AS balance,cus#

FROM lib.file)



SELECT *

FROM temp

WHERE balance>0



The processor doesn't like the '>' but I believe it's actually pointing to a problem with my mapped field - balance. I've substituted = for >; it still throws the same error (SQL0104). However, if I run the script eliminating the WHERE clause in the full-select, it runs nicely returning both columns as I think they should look.



I hate arguing with script processors. BTW, I'm doing this using System i Navigator.
