De-Pivot and Value Types
I'm working with the De-Pivot operator to transform some data, currently in one line to different lines.
Just up front, I'm working with 5.3.015 open scource.
The original data looks like:
I use De-Pivot to transform it into
An error message is delivered quoting that the two types are not compatible so de-pivotisation can't be done.
Is it a bug? Maybe it is already fixed, I don't know?
I got a work around using first NumericToNominal and then NominalToNumeric to get the type of Value_Month1 attribute from "real" to "numeric"
But still I think it is odd that the two types "numeric" and "real" are compatible everywhere else but while using De-Pivot.
And it also arose the question: What are the differences between "real" and "numeric"? Why are both in use?
Haven't found anything in the Manual so far.
