This is a data problem. It means you can't convert one varchar into an integer properly.

There is cast to do the conversion and please the data type of the column is varchar.

You should be able to enter the data into Varchar Column which is been changed from Int to Varchar.   Just check again the table design and make sure the column is changed from varchar from int and is been saved properly.

I think there is a cast somewhere, like in the trigger of the table, which is doing the conversion and leads to this problem now.

Unfortunately we are not sitting at your computer so unless you can post your table schema and the SQL query you are executing we can only provide wild guesses.

Does the table have a trigger or a computed column?
