Default insert into....select problem

Hello all...
First off, I'm new to sql server.

I'm trying to make a stored procedure that queries records from one table and needs to insert them into another. But if there is a matching record already there, append that new information. Then write new records in the table. I receive an error message complaining about the & sign.

My code is below:

SELECT dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].PREVIOUS_ID,
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKN00-KTOKD],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKNA1-NAME1],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKN00-VKORG_P],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKN00-VTWEG_P],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKN00-SPART_P],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKNVP-PARVW],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKNVP-KTONR],
        dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKNVP-DEFPA] &_
FROM dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Header] INNER JOIN dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner]
ON (dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Header].[BKN00-KTOKD] = dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].[BKN00-KTOKD])
AND (dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Header].PREVIOUS_ID = dbo.[T_Customer Master Data_Partner].PREVIOUS_ID)
This is my error message:
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Procedure Export_Customer_Z001_Partner, Line 33
Incorrect syntax near '&'.

What's the "&_" for? Don't need line continuations in SQL Server.

Also, if you want to simplify your code a bit, consider the following...

SELECT Cst.CustomerID, Cst.CompanyName, Cst.ContactName,
       Ord.ShippedDate, Ord.Freight
FROM Northwind.dbo.Orders AS Ord
     Northwind.dbo.Customers AS Cst
  ON (Cst.CustomerID = Ord.CustomerID)

"Cst" and "Ord" are called "Table Aliases" and allow for the shorthand shown in the SELECT list and join conditions. You can even join two copies of the same table to itself using table aliases.
