"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Select 'a' ,'b','c' -- these headers are Char type , so you need to convert all the columns below to Char
  union all
   select name, cast(amount as Varchar (100), CAST(balance  as varchar(100) ) from xyz
