Degree Converter Tool error.

Issue

Degree converter tool throws error when "Convert column to DMS" menu is clicked. The converter tool window does not open, instead this error message is shown:

User-added image

Cause

The column to hold the resulting values after conversion need to be added prior to using tool. For conversion to DMS, the new column should be a character type.

If the table does not have ANY character column, the tool throws this error.

Resolution

UPDATED: October 9, 2017


Add the column to hold the resulting values after conversion, of type 'character' via Table Maintenance.
