I am trying to merge multiple shapefiles into one so I can select all wetland polygons that intersect with this layer. For my purposes, I don't care about the attributes as long as I have the polygon.
As I try to merge the files I get an error message saying: "SARA_Statu in field X has different data type than in other layers (Integer64 instead of String)."
So from my understanding it wont merge attributes together because one is an integer data type in one shapefile and it is string in another. Is there a quick work around to merging these files without tweaking with the attributes? For my purposes, I just want the polygon and I don't care about the attributes.
