I am trying to import a CSV into a DBF using ArcCatalog (10.1).
In the field map, pictured below, I can only set an ID field to Long, Text, Double, etc. But there is no
Numeric type as in DBF and shapefile attributes.
If I import the ID field as a Long, values will be truncated. If I import it as Text, it will be different type than
Numeric. In either case, I won't be able to join the imported DBF to a shapefile with the ID.
How should I choose the type so that the ID in the imported DBF can be joined with a 'Numeric' ID in shapefiles?
