Hi @tejashriw155148 ,

 

you must do a split after query selection to get two branches (one for INT and another for STRING).

After that you may convert to  preferred type in Enrichment nodes in needed (per branch.)

 

If your data have only two characters you may adapt query in split:

  1. To identify numbers something like: first character in (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) and second character in (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)
  2. To identify non-numbers just enable Complement of point 1 to get all non-numbers

 

Generally, with provided data all input values are string. Then you need to separate it with split (above) and do conversion of numbers to integer.

 

Regards,

Milan

Looking at your data below, you cant convert an alpha-based string to an integer. It has to be a numeric string only.

Hard to know what your actual data looks like with that small sample, but if you can assume that the non-numeric data will always start with an alpha character, you can do something like this:

Iif(Ascii(Left(@yourColumn,1)) < 58 and Ascii(Left(@yourColumn,1)) > 47, ToInteger(@yourColumn) , -1 )

This checks the first character to see if it is between 0 and 9. If it is then convert the value to an Integer. Otherwise put "-1" in the data.

Hello @tejashriw155148 

 

You can try ToInt64(<number>) or ToInteger(<number>) depending on your use case.
