Can run select statement because datatypes are different.   I can't change datatype.  Any ideas?

             The data types text and varchar are incompatible in the equal to operator
SELECT     ud02.number02, customer.discountpercent
FROM         customer INNER JOIN
                      ud02 ON customer.character01 = ud02.key1
