Subqueries in Bigquery - syntax

A subquery is a query that appears inside another statement, and is written inside parentheses. These are also referred to as "sub-SELECTs" or "nested SELECTs". The full SELECT syntax is valid in subqueries

SELECT r.LastName FROM
( SELECT * FROM Roster) AS r;

NOTE: If you are using a subquery in a filter clause, Bigquery supports selecting only one column:

SELECT LastName FROM Employee Where EMP_ID IN
( SELECT EMP_ID FROM DEPT);

If you have more than one column as part of your subquery in the filter clause, you will get the below error message:

Error: Scalar subquery produced more than one element

If you get the above error message, you will have to rewrite your SQL Query differently to get rid of that filter
