I was using Process Document from Data to get TF-IDF scores and by default they are coming under Real data type. There is no way I can convert Real to Numeric data type which restricts me in running PCA or SVD as they can accept only numeric data type. Any help in this regard will be very much appreciated.

It can be very helpful if you have numbers (integers) in an .xls, because "Read Excel" operator automatically convert these integers into real numbers, so one has to convert these numbers back to integers.
