TI Error: Cannot convert field number 9

I was working on a new TI process today and got this error – “Cannot convert field number 9, value “*textdata*” to a real number”.

Odd, I thought. Cryptic error – cannot convert field number 9! I initially thought it might concern field number 9 in my source data.  Nope.  No cigar!

What this is saying is that there is a field on the Variables tab has been defined as numeric when it should have been string.

To resolve the error “Cannot convert field number 9, value “*textdata*” to a real number”, go define the offending field (not field number 9!) as String on the Variables tab in your Turbo Integrator process and viola!
