Adding to Expression "-01" to a value

Dear all, I just want to create a new column. The value of this column should just append the value of an existing column by "-01". For example: the existing value is "150000", I intend to create a new column which is "150000-01". Many thanks for your help in advance. Best regards Dennis

You need to use a formula tool to do this (this allows you to create fields).


And then you can use the statement...




This will only work however, if the existing field you want to append to (which I have titled MyField), is already a string, otherwise you may have to use the statement...




Or use a select tool prior to the formula to change the datatype.



Many thanks for the fast support.
