I'm getting a "3800: DataType mismatch in THEN/ELSE expression" error, on my COALESCE part of a query.
The problem query is similar to this:
SELECT A.PI_Column1 ,A.PI_Column2 ,COALESCE( MIN( B.CHAR_20_FIELD ), 'String Literal') AS Attrib1 FROM DB.Table A LEFT OUTER JOIN DB.Table B ON (A.PI_Column1 = B.PI_Column1 AND A.PI_Column2 = B.PI_Column2) GROUP BY 1,2,3 ;
Any insights as to why COALESCE does not like my MIN()? I can't find the SQL right now, but I'm sure I've done this MIN() logic in a COALESCE before.
