Syntax error converting the varchar value to a column of data type int

SQL Server Error Message: Syntax error converting the varchar value to a column of data type int

Error Message:

Server: Msg 245, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Syntax error converting the varchar value to a column of data type int.

Causes:

There are many ways this error may be encountered but the common reason is that you are trying to convert, either implicitly or explicitly, a varchar value to an int data type and the varchar value cannot be converted to an int data type.  You may have a varchar column that may have integer values on most records but where some have non-integer values.

One other common reason why this is encountered is when creating a dynamic SQL statement and the query involves combining a varchar variable with an integer variable.
