I often use the formula component to change the data type of a column, e.g. convert a string to a datetime. What I normally have to do is create a new column and then use a select to drop the old column. I would like to be able to do all of this in 1 operation, i.e. make the greyed out 'Data Type' active so I could choose to convert to data type datetime. Would also be useful to rename the existing column in this operation too.
