I modified the schema of my Excel writer and now I have some new attributes one of which is ID and it must be number. Then I added an attribute manager to set value to my new attribute. I am trying to find a way to fill new field (attribute) with correct value and format. It looks simple but I can't find it.

  • Is it in the AttributeManager that you are having a problem? Or in the writer schema? Jun 5, 2023 at 16:04
  • I created a new empty attribute in the writer but I don't know how to set values. My problem is in AttributeManager. I am not sure if it's a proper transformer or I have to find another one. Jun 7, 2023 at 13:14

You need to set your Attributes Definition to Manual if you wish to have control over it.

I will be set automatically as a number once it has reached the writer.
