The Coerce To Type function converts the input data to a compatible data type while preserving the data value. Unlike the Type Cast function, this function does not reinterpret the input data.

Use this function in the following cases:

  • To eliminate a coercion dot
  • To convert data without a type definition to a compatible type definition or vice versa
  • To rename data on the wire, such as a user event refnum
