Invalid alias name

We are running office 2003 and office 2000 in our office. I have a union
query that I am using and it works fine on 2003 but I get an invalid alias
name error when I run it on the 2000. It looks like this:
SELECT "Z-1", [Z-1] as Choice,[NAME (LAST)],[NAME
(FIRST)],[FSD],[PLANT],[TRADE],[SKILLED DATE]
FROM [Voluntary Flowback Survey Data]
UNION ALL
SELECT "Z-2", [Z-2], [NAME (LAST)],[NAME

UNION ALL
SELECT "Z-3", [Z-3], [NAME (LAST)],[NAME

UNION ALL SELECT "Z-21", [Z-21], [NAME (LAST)],[NAME

FROM [Voluntary Flowback Survey Data];

Can anyone tell me why this will not work in 2000? Thanks! Jeff

The first field is a literal. Try giving it an alias, e.g.:
SELECT "Z-1" AS TheSource, ...

I'm surprised you got that many UNIONs to work.
