I have this query which is returning a NULL value instead of the values I need.  I need to add a ISNULL to the first line, but with all the trims, lefts, I am having trouble.

Where exactly would that go?  It needs to be attached to dd.ODJCJOB
select 
			'Job: ' + LEFT(LTRIM(dd.ODJCJOB) + SPACE(16), 16) +
			'Cost Code: ' + LEFT(LTRIM(dd.ODJCPHS) + SPACE(16), 16) + 
			'Amount: ' + LEFT(LTRIM(STR(dd.ODAMT, 14, 2)) + SPACE(16), 16)
		from [ADCData].dbo.MASTER_APM_RECORD_2 dd 
		where dd.ODINV = '061711' and dd.ODVND = 'ASSURANTEM'

select 
			'Job: ' + COALESCE(LEFT(LTRIM(dd.ODJCJOB), '') + SPACE(16), 16) +
			'Cost Code: ' + COALESCE(LEFT(LTRIM(dd.ODJCPHS), '') + SPACE(16), 16) + 
			'Amount: ' + COALESCE(LEFT(LTRIM(STR(dd.ODAMT, 14, 2)), '') + SPACE(16), 16)
		from [ADCData].dbo.MASTER_APM_RECORD_2 dd 
		where dd.ODINV = '061711' and dd.ODVND = 'ASSURANTEM'

Sorry, try:


select 
	'Job: ' + LEFT(LTRIM(COALESCE(dd.ODJCJOB, '')) + SPACE(16), 16) +
		'Cost Code: ' + LEFT(LTRIM(COALESCE(dd.ODJCPHS, '')) + SPACE(16), 16) + 
		'Amount: ' + LEFT(LTRIM(STR(COALESCE(dd.ODAMT, ''), 14, 2)) + SPACE(16), 16)
	from [ADCData].dbo.MASTER_APM_RECORD_2 dd 
	where dd.ODINV = '061711' and dd.ODVND = 'ASSURANTEM'
