Google BigQuery SQL Error


In Google Big Query I am trying to join two tables where the one field is an integer and the other a string. I still get the error

"Error running query

Error while reading table: emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.d_customer_eu_pd.t_customer_master, error message: Error detected while parsing row starting at position: 10864280. Error: Data between close double quote (") and field separator."

SELECT * FROM `emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.d_customer_eu_pd.t_customer_master`
LEFT JOIN `emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.sellout_bqdset_eu_pd.MAP_CUSTOMER_CLUSTER`
ON  `emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.d_customer_eu_pd.t_customer_master`.CORE_LB_CustomerNumber = Cast(`emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.sellout_bqdset_eu_pd.MAP_CUSTOMER_CLUSTER`.CUSTOMER_CODE as string);

I don't think that is the problem. The following works

SELECT * FROM `emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.d_customer_eu_pd.t_customer_master`
LEFT JOIN `emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.sellout_bqdset_eu_pd.MAP_CUSTOMER_CLUSTER`
ON  `emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.d_customer_eu_pd.t_customer_master`.CORE_LB_CustomerNumber = Cast(`emea-sales-gbl-emea-pd.sellout_bqdset_eu_pd.MAP_CUSTOMER_CLUSTER`.CUSTOMER_CODE as string) LIMIT 1000;

Looking deeper at the error message:
Error detected while parsing row starting at position: 10864280

Seems there is "bad" data in the table.
