I have multiple data fields that need to be converted from string to text files. When I save them as "text" in excel or open office, they still load up as string files in QGIS. How can I convert more than one column at once from string to text (or even integer, etc. if the situation arises)?

Thanks for your help! Alex


A string is just a sequence of characters as is text, for what you're doing they're bassically the same thing.

From dictionary.com

String 16. Computers, Linguistics . a linear sequence of symbols, words, characters, or bits that is treated as a unit.
