should be

SET SubDescription1 = 'MTD:'  + SubDescription1 + te.Quantity

you may also need convert(nvarchar, te.Quantity)

Maybe try something like this

SET SubDescription1 = 'MTD:' + Cast([SubDescription1] as NvarChar(100)) + Cast([te].[Quantity] as NvarChar(100))

Open in new window

The solution to your problem was the + was missing as per my response. You did not specify the data types of your columns so I don't see how an answer that assumes them could be more correct.

I would object to how these points were awarded
