I have a drain pipe layer that includes fields for upstream elevation, downstream elevation, and length.  I want to calculate the slope.  However, the fields are all string fields.  Is there a way to do this in ArcGIS Pro without adding or otherwise changing the fields?  I remember in the old days with avenue you could use a thing like {field}.asnumber or {field}.asstring to a calculate function to do stuff like this, but I don't know if there's a way to do it in Pro.  Thanks!
