This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to map a column through Graduated style in QGIS. But the values in my column have a few repeated values of example 1000s, 1003s, 1005s etc. and the program recognizes it as categorized style. If I map it as categorized I will have over 1400 categories. What can I do to plot as a Graduated style? It is not appearing in the drop down option.
