I tried using DataType to query dataset in FP Version 9.1.10. The return value is an integer value. Is there a way to test this value and use it with ChangeDataType operator to convert various Calendar Time, Time Span, and String-based X-values, from different data sources, to a common data type (for instance, Time Span)? I was also curious if there is a list of the return values (integers) from DataType operator that lines up with the help file listings of the different types of data. For example, 1234S is a DataType value=1; 1234L is DataType value=8. I attempted to use these values in the ChangeDataType operator, but only the only dropdown menu options that pop up are the ‘verbose’ values – e.g. TYPE_TIMESPAN, TYPE_FLOATINGPOINT64, etc.).
Unfortunately, I have no file example to provide at this time.
