Trouble converting polygon to raster

I am attempting to convert polygons into a raster file based on a specific field. However, when I attempted this I got the following error messages:

ERROR 010067: Error in executing grid expression. Unable to decode column value
ERROR 010235: Returned error from ShapeGrid

The field I am using to populate the raster grid was one I added into the table of contents. So the only thing I can think of is there's an issue there, especially since I was able to populate the raster using a preexisting field. Any help is greatly appreciated.
