Ability to change field Data Types in View
I was trying to append a subquery to a report with two different views by joining on the date field, but Yellowfin said the data in both fields had to be of the same type. The date field in the second view was correctly identified as a 'date' data type, but in my first view it has been picked up as a varchar. Viewing the data in the database I can see that both fields have the 'date' data type, but I can't get Yellowfin to pick up the change in data type. I can only assume it was varchar when I first made the view, as creating a new view on the same table forces Yellowfin to correctly identify this field as a date. Although I could make the view again, I have about 40 calculated measures in it so would rather not rebuild it again. I've restarted Yellowfin and refreshed my table but can't seem to get the change to go through.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
