Hi,

I'm using ArcGIS 9.2 and I'm trying to use either the Cluster and Outlier or Hotspot analysis tools. When I do, it comes up with "Analysis field, AL__, must be numeric... it is: String." and then says there is an error in the script. I'm not sure how to fix this. When choosing the output field all I can do is create a new shapefile, I have no control over what is numeric or string etc. Can anyone help?

"Executing (ClustersOutliers_8): ClustersOutliers "AM1 FLOAT" Au_ppm "C:\GIS April 2017\Pisa's GIS Work\Hotspot test\test4.shp" "Inverse Distance" "Euclidean Distance" None 0 # LMiUnknown LMiUnknown
