    Convert Imported String to Lat/Longs

    Brian Duncan

      Hello -

      • I have imported two fields labeled Latitude (Display) and Longitude (Display) via PowerPivot
      • I am trying to convert these fields (Dimensions) to numbers I can use to plot on a map.
      • I assume I first need to convert the data type from String to Number.
      • Then, I though all I would have to do is assign the Geographic Role; Longitude and Latitude to the two parameters.
      • Unfortunately "Longitude" and "Latitude" do not appear as options.  I am sure i am missing something simple..


      Any Ideas and help would be greatly appreciated.


      Thanks much,
