Trying to add a relation for two different data tables that the releated columns have different data types.

Both columns have the name of screen_no but one table is Int16 and the other is Int32.
I am getting the error "Parent Columns and Child Columns don't have type-matching columns"

Thanks,

even sql server does not allow that
promote int 16 column to int 32 because in that way you wont be loosing anything

Thanks raqi, unfortunately I don't have control of the source of the columns but can change anything in the data table(s) as needed and that is where I am getting hung up. Don't know the best approach to doing that.

Thanks again,
