Hi Experts

I have a table on SQLServer key of nvarchar(10) and Description
I has Numeric and String in the key
I need to select from another table with a key if INT so I want to check and block any string keys

TableA id nVarchar(10) Key, Description nVarchar(50)
TableB id Int, Amount, Type
 
Select
a.Description
, b. Amount
, b.Type
From TableA a
Left Join
TableB b on (b.id = a.id)

Errors - Error Conversion error when converting the nvarchar value 'The value' to data type int

Thanks
