The following code produces the error:

Incorrect column expression: '(Case .... End)' where the error message lists the entire case statement.

SELECT AccountNo
(CASE when Cases = 0 then null else Avg(Cases / Cases+Pallets) End)
FROM SalesHistory
WHERE (Supplier='Supplier1') AND (InvoiceDate>'01/01/2013')
GROUP BY AccountNo

couple of things:
you need a ',' after AccountNo in your select statement,
and include Cases, Pallets to your group by clause.
