Incompatible join types: x.chr (integer) and i.chr (character)

I'm trying to merge two data frames using a column name. However, I'm getting the following error:

Error in bmerge(i, x, leftcols, rightcols, roll, rollends, nomatch, mult, :
Incompatible join types: x.chr (integer) and i.chr (character)

One of the data frames has values like Chr1, chr2, chr3.... and the other one has values like 1,2,3....

I would like to know how to address this issue?


There must be two columns of the same type to perform an operation like this. Suggest


in appropriate data frame modification action.
