Data Source Details in SharePoint Designer Fails to Show List Data

I have a list with a calculated value which is based on two other text values. Having entered a few test items in the list, the Data Source Details pane in SharePoint Designer was reporting an error with retrieving data for that list.

Further investigation revealed that one of the paths through the formula for the calculated column was returning a number rather than a string. This incorrect data type was causing the failure in the Data Source Details
