Hi @ctedesco3307 

 

You have to check the data type in Power Query like in the image bellow:

Thanks - but I can't even get that far. When I select the tables I get the error before the query is made. Both columns are of the same type in the tables. 

@ctedesco3307 can you share the power bi file so i can see what is happening?
