      unable to change field type

      Post

      Hi

      I am unable to change the field type in  filemaker pro database.   The file type is text we would like to change it to numeric but when I go to  file - > manage database - >  pick the table I want  -> pick the field name to change  in this case  from  text  to Number   the "down arrow"  is greyed out.  Could you please help  us  with some  troubleshooting steps so we are allowed to change this.  little info about our database it has a couple of relationships, also  I login as user account that has full rights when trying to change the field type(data type), the consultant that created this didn't really document  what he did. Thanks for your time John Koper
