You can use the CAST or CONVERT function to convert a char to a float.
CAST ( expression AS data_type )
CONVERT ( data_type [ ( length ) ] , expression [ , style ] )

Nut if i want to change the data type in VIEW is it possible?
Or i must do it in the table?
When i try to use the CONVERT in view,
FROM wo_view

Error converting data type varchar to float.

Please give me some advice!
