Struggling with a simple SQL statement - this --

OrderID +'-'+'('+M.FirstName + ' ' +M.LastName+')'+M.ClubName+'-'+CONVERT(VARCHAR(11),OrderDate,106) As OrderDetail
from dbo.Ordertb O
inner join dbo.Member M
on O.MemberID = M.ID
where [Direct-Order] = 'Y' AND OrderStatus = 2 AND BatchID IS NULL
Order by OrderID Asc

Gives me this --

Msg 245, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Conversion failed when converting the varchar value '(' to data type int.

Appreciate any insight -
