Data type mismatch

When I run the following query I get an error: "Data type mismatch in criteria expression"

If I remove the SMARTQtr expression the query runs ok.  What is wrong with the SMARTQtr expression?  It seems to work in other queries.  Thanks.

You will probably need to post the SQL for your query :-)

Yes !! I forgot  ...

SELECT "Members" AS Id, Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4),Mid(Revenue.SMARTMth,5),1)) AS SMARTQtr, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid] AS Cohort2, Sum(Revenue.[Member Count]) AS [SumOfMember Count]
FROM Revenue LEFT JOIN 6CareODSCohort ON (Revenue.[Subscriber ID] = [6CareODSCohort].MedicaidID) AND (Revenue.SMARTMth = [6CareODSCohort].Month)
GROUP BY "Members", Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4),Mid(Revenue.SMARTMth,5),1)), [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid];

I'm not seeing a Criteria expression or SMARTQtr   ?? Is there a missing WHERE clause ?

There is no missing WHERE clause.  This is the expession for SMARTQtry:

SMARTQtr: Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4),Mid(Revenue.SMARTMth,5),1))

This query works.  It does not have the expression:
SMARTQtr: Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left(Revenue.SMARTMth,4),Mid(Revenue.SMARTMth,5),1))
===

SELECT "Members" AS Id, Revenue.SMARTMth, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid] AS Cohort2, Sum(Revenue.[Member Count]) AS [SumOfMember Count]
FROM Revenue LEFT JOIN 6CareODSCohort ON (Revenue.SMARTMth = [6CareODSCohort].Month) AND (Revenue.[Subscriber ID] = [6CareODSCohort].MedicaidID)
GROUP BY "Members", Revenue.SMARTMth, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid];

Now it works !!

SELECT "Members" AS Id, Left([Revenue].[SMARTMth],4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left([Revenue].[SMARTMth],4),Mid([Revenue].[SMARTMth],5),1)) AS SMARTQtr, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid] AS Cohort2, Sum(Revenue.[Member Count]) AS [SumOfMember Count]
FROM Revenue LEFT JOIN 6CareODSCohort ON (Revenue.SMARTMth = [6CareODSCohort].Month) AND (Revenue.[Subscriber ID] = [6CareODSCohort].MedicaidID)
GROUP BY "Members", Left([Revenue].[SMARTMth],4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left([Revenue].[SMARTMth],4),Mid([Revenue].[SMARTMth],5),1)), [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid];

I have two databases.  The above SQL works in one db but not in the other ...

Okay, then you need to compare the datatypes in the two databases for the [Revenue] table and any other tables involved in that bit of the WHERE clause.

To summarize my problem:

The following query works ok:
===
SELECT "Members" AS Id, Revenue.SMARTMth, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid] AS Cohort2, Sum(Revenue.[Member Count]) AS [SumOfMember Count]
FROM Revenue LEFT JOIN 6CareODSCohort ON (Revenue.SMARTMth = [6CareODSCohort].Month) AND (Revenue.[Subscriber ID] = [6CareODSCohort].MedicaidID)
GROUP BY "Members", Revenue.SMARTMth, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid];
===

But if I change SMARTMth to this expression: SMARTQtr: Left([Revenue.SMARTMth],4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left([Revenue.SMARTMth],4),Mid([Revenue].[SMARTMth],5),1))

so that the query becomes:
===
SELECT "Members" AS Id, Left([Revenue.SMARTMth],4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left([Revenue.SMARTMth],4),Mid([Revenue].[SMARTMth],5),1)) AS SMARTQtr, [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid] AS Cohort2, Sum(Revenue.[Member Count]) AS [SumOfMember Count]
FROM Revenue LEFT JOIN 6CareODSCohort ON (Revenue.SMARTMth = [6CareODSCohort].Month) AND (Revenue.[Subscriber ID] = [6CareODSCohort].MedicaidID)
GROUP BY "Members", Left([Revenue.SMARTMth],4) & " Q" & DatePart("q",DateSerial(Left([Revenue.SMARTMth],4),Mid([Revenue].[SMARTMth],5),1)), [Cohort] & " " & [Dual/Medicaid];
===

I get an error message:  "Data type mismatch in criteria expression"
