New to sql server 2008 and beginning programmer. Trying to concatenate two fields with a "-" dash in between the values

kp_ProcessLevelIdName + '-' + kp_reviewtype AS "Process",

getting this error:
Msg 245, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value 'Coverage Determination-' to data type int.


Coverage Determination is one of the values in the kp_processlevelidname field

any suggestions?

Thanks!

Yes, you need to convert the integer column to a character value, cast(kp_reviewtype as varchar(10)).

Cool
