:converted to number


What does it mean the :converted to number operator?

Thanks in advance :slightly_smiling_face: :computer:

Hey there,

It essentially means that you can convert a text string into a number to run calculations against e.g. maths, date/time, formulas…

It becomes very useful in certain circumstances where you need to do some of the above calculations or validate a criteria as a number output, rather than text.


Oh, okay, thanks.

I have the address and the number of a house. I think convert to number the house number is not useful.

Your welcome.

And yeah generally thats fine saved as pure text - unless you use some external API where the house numbers has to be a number, but the good thing is you can save in plain text and then convert that string to a number if ever needed - where as before its one directional e.g. number to text, but not the other way around.
