I am attempting to convert a raster to a polygon shapefile.  I created the raster from the field (Type: Float, Precision: 0, Scale: 0) of a point shapefile within a polygon shapefile's extent.  The raster came out as expected within the selected polygon extent however when I try to convert the new raster to a polygon for easier transfer between computers and general space, I receive the error message:

"ERROR 000864: field: the input is not within the definied domain. 
ERROR 000308: invalid field type"

How can I change the field type or create a new field to then convert the raster into a polygon?

Thank you,
