I have two different field with different properties as can be shown from photo. 

I need to copy one field  properties to another but it gives error "The value is you entered is out of range or is not a whole number"

First field type is double second one is float. Thanks for answer.

It will still update. But it will truncate it to the length of the float that has been defined.

Which you can specify in the Precision option

What method are you using to try and copy. the Float should be able to take the double.

I just created a float field and field calculated the shape length in to it.

Hi @turguttosun ,

Just from a basic data type standpoint Double has a higher range than Float.

Having said that, it is easier to move a data from a Float field into a Double but not the other way around, not without data loss. You may refer ArcGIS field data types

In your case, you will have to Add Field to create a secondary field with field type as Double and use Calculate Field to populate the data.

I hope this helps!
