I am importing data from cvs file.

The data is coded. The data comes from ambulance runs.

There is a lookup table with the followiing


Rig lookup table

CityCode   City     EmsCode     Rig

numb          txt        numb           txt          type

2082         PGH     17221         Eng 16    value


in the main CSV file are the following fields

rig1 17221     imported as text but the data dictionary says they are numbers

rig2 18221




Ok on import I want to change the numbers to txt designations.

I have tried setting the rig field to text and then set up a lookup on import with Rig Lookup table

I have tried setting the rig field to numeric and then set up a lookup on import  Rig Lookup table

It just show the rig1 code 17221, it is like nothing is executing


Thanks in advance, I have been on this site and google for hours trying to figure this out.
