Validation error nrdm function <cannot parse expression. for the call to function , cannot convert parameter number <534> to type <varchar>. provide a parameter of the correct type.. (bodi-1112351)> (bodi-1111191)

I tried looking into the values that I have passed for each parameter but that looks fine.

  • Hi Preeti Prabhu,

    what is the field data type which is having '534' value and your passing to function.

    Preeti Prabhu,

    One of the value that you are feeding is 534 and system is recognizing this value as number and not able to convert it into a VARCHAR fields.

    Find the field which holds this value, find the data type of it and see it is same with destination field that you are targeting at. If not equal make it same at both ends and proceed.
