I'm using ArcGIS10.4.1 Desktop. A coworker was adding a field to a shapefile, specifying short integer. When she went to properties of that field it says it is a long integer. When trying to use the Simple Data Loader, the field types must match. I need the field to be a short integer but it comes up as a long integer.
I've tried adding a field to a different random shapefile and it also says Long integer when I specified the field to be a Short.
