I know how to do it in Avenue and I see old threads about how to do it in VBA.  But how do I do it now with VB or Python?  This should be simple but every time I get an error.  I have one column with numbers and its a String field.  I added a new field as a Long and am trying to use the field calculator to populate it with the same data as the string field, but as a number.  How?
