Report showing ID value rather than value in the query

I have a report that works off of a filtered query.  Everything works correctly on the report except a field shows the ID value rather than the value of the record.  The query that brings the data in shows the correct value in the field.  How do I fix?

Example in the report:
doc number       description     rev    type    
123                   test doc           A        1     (type should be Instructions)
