Changing Feature Class Number field data type to Text

if you need to change a field in a feature class from “Number” to “Text” you can not do that on the Fly…..

my recommendation: create an empty duplicate feature class, while defining the new column field to “Text”, then upload the data from the original feature class.


Hope This Helps 😉
