I am trying to use a pass-in variable as a _categorical_ covariate, but when I go to HB estimation --> covariates, it is only available as continuous. I can't change continuous to categorical. (It's a "Whole Number" pass in variable.) I am using 8.4.4. Not sure if it's a bug preventing me from changing it to categorical or if it's just functionality that was never added.
The only way I can seem to do it now is to set up filters for all 6 codes in my pass in variable and then rebuild a segment variable based on those 6 filters. Basically, it's breaking it down into its parts and then rebuilding it.
If there is no other way to do this, then I would like to please request this as a feature. Please allow us to change pass-in variables from continuous to categorical.
