Change dataset properties after importing data

Recommended Posts

I have already coded approximately 6000 records and am now realizing that I should have made another field codable. Is there any way to turn a classifying field into a codable field after importing? It seems like something that should be straightforward. I did see an older question that was similar and the answer was 'no' but I'm hoping that in 2021 this functionality exists.

Thanks for any help you can offer,

Hello @Heather_McPhail,

Official documentation states:

"You cannot change the analysis type and data type of fields (columns) after import, so you should consider how you want to use the fields, before importing the data."

Hope this helps,
