Recently I am working with raster data and Here I find something new for me. And here some question arises in my mind. I tried to search some document that can satisfy my mind, but I couldn't find. Any pointer or document or link would be helpful.

When I perform Raster to polygon conversion's, fourth parameter is raster_field. Sometimes I can give either "Value" field or "Count" field in it, sometimes, its only "Value" field. when and why? When does it take only "Value" field?
