Hi All,
I have an csv source file in which a column is of Number datatype. I want o to convert it into integer.
I am using ADF Dataflow dervied column expression toInteger(toString(RowId)). This expression is producing Null values.
Also, i used this expression toInteger((RowId) but its producing the same result.

Please let me know how i can convert Number to Int. I can change CSV column datatype as well.

    Hi @Sarvesh Pandey ,

    Thankyou for using Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for posting your question here.

    In order to convert the datatype , you can use Cast transformation in mapping data flow. The Cast transformation enables super-easy data type conversions with built-in type checking. Use the column drop-down to select columns from your stream of metadata for type conversion.

    For more details, kindly check : Cast Transformation in Mapping data flows in Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Analytics

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
