COMPUTE clause #%d, aggregate expression #%d is not in the select list.

Error Message:
Msg 411, Level 16, State 1, Line 6
COMPUTE clause #%d, aggregate expression #%d is not in the select list.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to use an aggregate expression in a COMPUTE clause that does not appear in the SELECT list.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. The aggregate expression of the COMPUTE clause must also appear in the SELECT list.

Versions:
All versions of SQL Server.

Example(s):
IF OBJECT_ID (‘dbo.t’) IS NOT NULL
    DROP TABLE dbo.t;
GO
CREATE TABLE dbo.t
(
    c1 int
);

SELECT
    c1
FROM
    dbo.t
COMPUTE
    SUM(1);

Remarks:
In the above example we try to use the aggregate expression SUM(1) in the COMPUTE clause. Because this expression does not appear in the SELECT list, the error is raised.
