Can you check your underlying data? I suspect you have a data-type mismatch.

Suspect columns are:
- OrderRunId v/s OrderNum (one of them must be a VARCHAR whereas the other would be a BIGINT) - check in both dbo.OrderDet and dbo.Orders tables
- Quant (does Quant have non-numeric data? If yes, the ISNULL will fail because it needs both the expression and replacement value to be of the same datatype)

To resolve, you will have to either remove/correct the offending data or use explicit conversion to convert both sides to a common datatype.

When SQL Server faces mismatched data-types, it tries to *implicitly* convert one to another based on the rules of data type precedence which states that data of the data type with lower precedence (in this case VARCHAR) is converted to one with higher precedence (BIGINT).  I have written about this with an example in my blog post (https://nakulvachhrajani.com/2015/08/03/0357-sql-server-best-practices-avoid-implicit-conversions-as-they-may-cause-unexpected-issues-part-01/) in case you would like to take a look.
