LINQ Query Exception: Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar...

The following LINQ query

Dim db As New IRISmasterDataContext
Dim LocalCodeList = From localcode In db.LocalCodes _
 Where (localcode.localCode = strLocalCode & _
   localcode.companyCode = strCompanyCode & _
   localcode.BSELcode = strELCODE) _
Select localcode.LocalCode

throws the following exception:
Conversion failed when converting the nvarchar value 'ro100702010' to data type bit.

ro1 is the value of strCompanyCode and is taken from a textbox control on that page.  Of course other values have the same effect.
No idea where 00702010 comes from and why nvarchar.
The table columns  of the table LocalCode are declared as:
      [BSELcode] [char](8) NOT NULL,
      [companyCode] [char](3) NOT NULL,
      [localCode] [char](7) NOT NULL,

The equivalent SQL Query works fine.
Other LINQ queries in the same web site project and with the same DB are working as expected.

Hi DinuA;

Did you mean this to be the query using the "And" operator and not the "&"?

Dim db As New IRISmasterDataContext
Dim LocalCodeList = From localcode In db.LocalCodes _
 Where (localcode.localCode = strLocalCode And _
   localcode.companyCode = strCompanyCode And _
   localcode.BSELcode = strELCODE) _
Select localcode.LocalCode
