If you want to avoid selecting the data type during import of a dataset to PRJCTS you can follow the steps below.
- You must define the data type that each column in the Excel file contains before you import the data.
- You can review the data types in the article working with variables in Ledidi PRJCTS.
- If a column contains the weight of individuals, and the column header is “Weight”, you should rename the column to float#Weight, which means that this column contains numeric data with decimals.
- Here are a few examples: float#BMI, integer#Days after surgery, category#Country, date#Date of surgery, string#Comments
