Automatic data type conversion

Data Shaping Language can automatically convert a data type into another.

This happens when you map a field to another field with a different data type, for example.
Information noteWarning: Some conversions may lead to errors or data loss. For example, when converting a string to a boolean, the content of the string is lost if the string is not "true". When converting numbers, some precision can be lost if the source type has a higher precision than the target type.

You can also convert data types manually using functions. For more information, see Data type functions.
