converting integer to varchar in SQL server 2008

i have table data in which there are 3 integer data type columns. i have to convert them to character and insert in to another table.  In the below SQL the two columns in where clause are integer values. I have to convert them 'WO' and 'S':

SELECT [ID]
      ,[OrderNumber]
      ,[OperationsSequenceNumber]
      ,[TransactionCode]
      ,[LogTimeStamp]
      ,[EmployeeID]
      ,[QtyIn]
      ,[QuantityCompleted]
      ,[QuantityRejected]
      ,[Result]
      ,[ReasonID]
      ,[StartTime]
      ,[EndTime]
      ,[WeightingFactor]
      ,[SQLUpdated]
      ,[WoDescription]
      ,[Status]
  FROM [CVDProduction].[dbo].[OperationTransactions]
  WHERE [TransactionCode] = 2
  AND [Status] = 90
GO

You mean something like the following, or is there more to it?
SELECT [ID]
      ,[OrderNumber]
      ,[OperationsSequenceNumber]
      ,'WO'
      ,[LogTimeStamp]
      ,[EmployeeID]
      ,[QtyIn]
      ,[QuantityCompleted]
      ,[QuantityRejected]
      ,[Result]
      ,[ReasonID]
      ,[StartTime]
      ,[EndTime]
      ,[WeightingFactor]
      ,[SQLUpdated]
      ,[WoDescription]
      ,'S'
  FROM [CVDProduction].[dbo].[OperationTransactions]
  WHERE [TransactionCode] = 2
  AND [Status] = 90
GO

To insert into an existing table:INSERT INTO SomeTable (WO, S)SELECT CONVERT(varchar(100), TransactionCode), CONVERT(varchar(100), Status)FROM [CVDProduction].[dbo].[OperationTransactions]Or to just have your original query create a new table:SELECT [ID]      ,[OrderNumber]      ,[OperationsSequenceNumber]      ,CONVERT(varchar(100), [TransactionCode]) AS WO      ,[LogTimeStamp]      ,[EmployeeID]      ,[QtyIn]      ,[QuantityCompleted]      ,[QuantityRejected]      ,[Result]      ,[ReasonID]      ,[StartTime]      ,[EndTime]      ,[WeightingFactor]      ,[SQLUpdated]      ,[WoDescription]      ,CONVERT(varchar(100), [Status]) AS SINTO NewTableName  FROM [CVDProduction].[dbo].[OperationTransactions]  WHERE [TransactionCode] = 2  AND [Status] = 90
