When I run the following search, the field does not convert to a number:
search| convert num(Samples.Sample.Depth) as depth
depth field shows up as alpha numeric instead of numeric (a instead of #)
I am running V 7.2.1
Could you give an example?
Don't worry about that; what does this show when you add it?
| eval type=typeof(depth)
Also, is the value on the Statistics tab right-justified ( string ) or left-justified ( number )?
