Conversion via a Field Map

Question asked by jjr@therogers.com.au on Jun 13, 2012
Latest reply on Jul 2, 2012 by m.gasior
I am attempting to do a spatial join and use field mapping to convert a numeric field to a text field (and would then like to use the Join merge rule to concatenate the fields).  I know I can do numerical calcs with a subfield (eg sum, mean), but I really need to be able to show each value separated by a character, as happens when a Join merge rule is used with a Text Field.  However my first problem is the conversion.  Although I change the field type from "Double" to "Text", after the spatial join, this column is completely blank.

Can any one tell me if I can
  • convert the numeric to text in a spatial join

  • use the Join merge

  • rule once that is done?
