Convert Char to float
Am wanting to convert a char value (the infoobject is defined as NUMC) into float in order to perform a calculation in the FOX formula. It would not allow the char value to be stored into a float variable...comes back wz an error message - Types of operands F and <infoobject_numc> do not agree.
Any ways of doing this? I thought about using a function to perform the conversion from char to float format but dont knw if such a function exists on the BI system?
