    Data Conversion Question

    Michael Moore

      Is there a way to have a field systemically convert to a different data type (integer to string) each time the source is updated?  My situation is that I'm replacing one of my connections daily with a csv file.  The field is a telephone number that Tableau automatically assigns as an integer.  However, this is my primary key to join to another connection and it needs to be a string / dimension for the connection to be made.  However, do I force it the updated connection to keep that field as a string without me having to manually change it each time?
