I need to copy standard file using cpyf or equivalent by specific date range, but I need to convert a column with a character text string into a numeric field on the copied file. Is there a way to do that during or after the copy?  It’s conflicting with a cross reference report I run in crystal reports which cannot cross links that are not of the same type.

Thanks, Corey
