Question for you: are you under the impression that square brackets
are legal syntax in this query?  Or are you only showing those to
indicate the parts of your query that seem to be giving you problems?

Note also that giving a column another name using an alias
(col_name AS alias_name) doesn't mean you can refer to that alias
elsewhere in the column selection list.  For example, try substituting
Sum(tempsked.Win) wherever you're referring to the Win alias.
