Morning everyone, regarding the formula tool, i do have a couple of questions. Are multiple columns able to be updated with a single expression? And can the expression remove already existing columns?
Answers to your questions.
1. Are multiple columns able to be updated with a single expression?
No, you would need mutiple expressions to update mutiple columns. If the expression is same you can use Multi-Field formula tool to apply the formula on mutiple columns.
2. Can the expression remove already existing columns?
No, Formula tool doesnt have the capability to remove columns you would need a select tool or tool with embedded select window (like join tool, append tool) to remove columns.
Hope this helps : )
As atcodedog05 said, use the Multi-Field formula tool to update multiple columns.
