field definition change preventing update

I just exported my solution from dev and tried to import it into test. The import failed because I changed a field in one of my tables from whole number to calculated. (I dropped the column and then re-added it with the same name but a different definition).  The error is: 

  • Error while importing Calculated fields name pm_defaultprice
  • Attribute pm_defaultprice has SourceType 0, but 1 was specified.

I don't want to delete the current test instance because then I'll have to import a bunch of housekeeping data. Is there an easy way to force the import and ignore the error?

Hello @JenniferK

 

Possible Solutions,

 

1. Remove the Full entity from the Solution, Try Adding the same again without the field, PUBLISH and try again.

 

2. As you are copying from Dev to Test --> Dev will contain some more records --> Try Copying the Environment from Test --> Dev.

 

Note:

 

For 2nd point, all the Data will be same as Dev in Test after performing this operation
