I haven't seen this behavior, but it sounds like a bug. It would be helpful to us if you can file a support ticket, but let me make sure I understand the situation. You:
- Create a flow that consumes file A; everything works fine.
- Later, you edit the input step to point to file B.
- File B has slightly different data, so you need to change the types.
- The system doesn't let you make multiple type changes simultaneously -- it keeps reverting one change when you make another.
If that's right, it ain't right.
That's correct but I'll add that when I initially connected to file A, I had to change those same fields from number to string.
When I connect to file B, they are the exact same fields and type of data that was in file A (I made sure the files were set up identical), but Data Prep changes them back to number. From there, I can change one, but when I change the other, the first reverts.
I'll get some data dummied up and submit a ticket.
Sorry for the trouble, but thanks in advance -- some dummy data will really help.
