Make sure that the data field you are converting from is an integer and not
text or something else.

 

Thank you -

I am trying to do an exponential transformation of a field in a data set. In
the field calculator I typed Exp (N2) where N2 equals the field name of the
data I want to transform. It populates the entire field with ones. If I just
do a single record with Exp(3) where three equals the value in that record
for column N2 it gives me the desired number. So I apparently do not have
the syntax correct but I cannot find it in help. I am sure this is not hard
to do but I am missing some vital info.
