Hi,
I am trying to convert an integer to text in a query using:

CASE WHEN [Extension]<'80' THEN '0' + CAST( Extension AS text(12)) ELSE [Extension] END AS Extn

but I get the following error:
'Explicit conversion from data type int to text is not allowed'

Any suggestions? I dont want to convert the Table

Use varchar rather than text?

Ryan Randall

Solutions are easy. Understanding the problem, now, that's the hard part.

The '0' is not added when I use varchar

It must be [Extension]<80, not [Extension]<'80' .
