    ARB_NT/Species Information/Fields/Convert fields

     

    DESCRIPTION

    This allows you to convert the type of a species sub-field:

    • Select the field to convert from the list.
    • Select the type you want to convert the field into.
    • Press 'CONVERT'.

    The function will fail, if the conversion would discard data, e.g. if you try to convert 'Ascii Text' into 'Numerical' and the field contains "755 nucs".

    Exceptions from this rule:

    • Spaces, TABs and LFs at start/end of content will be removed silently when converting to 'Numerical' or 'Rounded numerical'
    • Conversion from 'Numerical' to 'Rounded numerical' will perform rounding. The number of rounded data fields will be printed into the message box.

     

    NOTES

    Conversion to types 'Link' and 'MASK' is not implemented yet.
