I have a large query in which I'm getting this error.

The weird thing is that the error occurs when my PHP grid component passes the query, but not when I paste the query into the MySQL command line.

And all my tables have the same collation, though not all use the same engine.

mysql> Select TAble_Name, Table_Collation, Engine from TABLES Where TABLE_SCHEMA        = 'wb_dev';
+-----------------------+-------------------+--------+
| TAble_Name            | Table_Collation   | Engine |
+-----------------------+-------------------+--------+
| wt_CompanySettings    | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_Expectation        | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_ExperienceLevel    | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_Login              | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_PaymentAgreement   | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_PerformanceLevel   | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_Settings           | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_URCriterion        | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_UserHistory        | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_UserReport         | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_UserSettings       | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_bulletin_alerts    | latin1_swedish_ci | MyISAM |
| wt_collectors         | NULL              | NULL   |
| wt_monthlynumber      | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_paymenttypes       | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_postpaymententries | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_tbldata            | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_tblhistory         | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_teams              | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
| wt_usertyes           | latin1_swedish_ci | InnoDB |
+-----------------------+-------------------+--------+
20 rows in set (0.64 sec)

Any idea where I'm going wrong?

Thanks!

Pulling the HTML out of the CONCAT ...
select 'Daily Production' as Category, Concat(Color,' $' , Format(Value, 2)) as Value ...
gives me a more explicit error message:
[nativecode=1270 ** Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT), (utf8_unicode_ci,COERCIBLE), (utf8_unicode_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation 'concat']

Looks like CONVERT will get it for me:
select 'Daily Production' as Category, Concat(Convert(Color USING utf8),' $' , Format(Value, 2)) as Value
