Change explicit value domain to numbers

Change explicit value domain to numbers.png

This question appears to help you prevent the mistake of using text that looks like numbers, but is actually text. It may appear while you are editing a Domain attribute of Explicit Values that is currently set to Text.

Analytica does not treat a text value that looks like a number as a number. So, for example, if you have the text "123" and you attempt to multiply it by a number, you'll get the warning that the * operator doesn't apply to text values. When entering an explicit domain, the type is often set to Text, and if left like this, the domain values will be text values, even if they look like numbers.
