Undescriptive error when trying to insert overwrite into a table

I have a query that I'm trying to insert overwrite into a table. In an effort to try and speed up the query I added a range join hint. After adding it I started getting the error below.Screenshot_20230118_104626I can get around this though by creating a temporary view of the same query and caching that temporary view. It will then allow me to insert overwrite into the table.

Could you please check for the datatype of your source and target table.

There might be mismatch between both.

Both are the same
