I am attempting to write a querie that will display in a drop down dialogue box in VB that will show the invoice number and the date of the invoice together.  I thought that this would work:

SELECT (inv_no + ' - ' + date) as billinfo from billing.

I get the error Operand type clash: date is incompatible with int

inv_no is an int field in the db and date is a date field.

Anone have any ideas as to how to do this?

Thanks

SELECT (CAST(inv_no AS varchar) + " - " + CONVERT(varchar, date, 101)) as field
FROM billing

that should do the trick :)
