I am combining many rasters using a "barcode" that describes attributes for each cell. Combine works on integer values: I combine multiple layers using "combine" tool, then create the bar code by creating a new field (text) and concatenating using the "&" to link fields. The next step is to combine a set of barcodes. But since the bar codes are in a field of type text, "combine" tool will not recognize them. If I copy the barcode values into a field of long integer type, my zeroes create problems. 0000010 becomes 10. I could "trick" the integer field by substituting some other integer for zero. It would perhaps be confusing for the user but it might work. Is there another tool that will combine rasters and keep fields of type text?
