I am working with the Shapefile consisting set of points. One of its field (let's call it X) contains numeric data, ranging from 0 to 1. In order to find out the average value of field X, I opened Attribute table, navigated to the field X and clicked with the right mouse on it. Showing me the list of options, the option Statistics is not active, meaning I cannot click on it.
It is a text field holding double. When I tried to perform some filtering using this attribute X, the operation looked like X >= '0.99' for example. But it worked, it indeed performed the operation correctly.
Has anyone ever faced this situation?
