I have 2 fields Field1(int) and Filed2 (bigint) and here is the statement:
Update [dbo].[591726273]
set [LINK] = [Field1] + left([Field2],18)
LINK is the data type bigint
I am getting the following error message:
Server: Msg 248, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The conversion of the varchar value '200705311867085988' overflowed an int column. Maximum integer value exceeded.
The statement has been terminated.

How do I fix this problem?

Thank you.
