How to read and understand error messages in Domo dataflows? (Redshift)



I am creating a dataflow and using redshift for my transformations. I am getting this error: The database reported a syntax error: [Amazon](500310) Invalid operation: syntax error at or near "then" Position: 888;

and I have a couple parts in my query using a then and my query is going up to 33 rows. What is the best way to locate the position 888?

    You should be able to paste your SQL into a basic text editor and make sure word wrap is turned off and then look for position 888.

    You could also post your SQL in this forum and people are happy to help you find the issue with your syntax.
