I’m trying to combine some data into one file. The issue is the plate barcode for some of these are long and others are string. When the file reader reads the longs in it reads them as double, and of course reads the strings as strings. This causes issues at the end of the loop.
What I’m trying to do is split away the plate barcode and if it is of type double convert it to long and then to type string. If I don’t do this then I get 7.77xxxxxE11 if I convert directly to string from double. If it comes in as type string I don’t want to do anything.
I have tried the traditional switches with no luck. My hunch is this could be done with a java if table node. I’m guessing there is some java which could say if column x is the go to port 0 if not then port 1.
Has anyone done this before?
Thanks in advance ,
