(this should be easy but i can't figure it out)

 

i've got a file where all the fields are of type v_string.  i want all of them to be numeric except for 1, which should be changed to date.  how do I do that? i tried select (tool) , select all and changing the type in int16 but that only changed the first entry, not all the fields.  what am i doing wrong?  thanks

@becki,

 

 

You can select use SHIFT with the left cursor to highlight all fields that you want and then OPTION change field type to the data type of your choosing.

 

Cheers,
