If I perform a join of an xls file to a shapefile and then save it as another shapefile, my numeric fields from the xls are displayed with many decimal ceroes.
Here is an example: The upper table is the result of saving the joined table (which is below).
When I check the type of field in the properties window of the original (joined) shape, it is a double - real- 0 length - 0 precision. In the new saved shapefile the type of field is double - real- 23 length - 15 precision.
How can I get the numbers with no decimals automatically?
