It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
Hey @spencerpoorman without seeing the workflow or a sample, I am thinking that the original field you're trying to convert is a number and that you're trying to apply the formula to the same field, which gives you an error (producing a string in a number field). My go-to fix for that is to have the conversion be a new column. Does that help?
Hi @spencerpoorman if you use that syntax in a existing field which is numeric you will get that error. If you create a new field in the formula tool and use that syntax and ensure you select a string field type for that new field then it will work fine.
