i am getting problem with concat and concat_ws function it as follows

SELECT msd.send_id,concat_ws(' ',ei.emp_name,'replied on',date(rd.reply_date),time(rd.reply_date))'name'
FROM send_detail msd
JOIN re_de rd ON msd.reply_id=rd.reply_id
JOIN m_cont mc ON mc.msg_id=msd.msg_id
JOIN .employee ei ON ei.emp_id=msd.receiver_id
WHERE msd.send_id=1024;

The above query is working fine, But when i am trying to format the date and time using date_fomat and time_format function, then it is showing error.

SELECT msd.sender_id,concat_ws(' ','me','replied','to',ei.emp_name,'on',date_format(date(rd.reply_id),'%d%c%Y'),time_format(time(rd.reply_date),'%r'))'name'
FROM send_detail msd
JOIN re_de rd ON msd.reply_id=rd.reply_id
JOIN m_cont mc ON mc.msg_id=msd.msg_id
JOIN .employee ei ON ei.emp_id=msd.receiver_id
WHERE msd.send_id=1024;

this one gives the following error.
Error Code : 1271
Illegal mix of collations for operation 'concat_ws'
(0 ms taken)


can't i use the date_format and time_format function in concat and concat_ws function.
