*Columns To Convert: Text string that specifies the columns to convert. Supply a single column name or a semi-colon delimited list of column names.
*Columns To Type: Text string that specifies the target types of the conversion. Supply a single type name or a semi-colon delimited list of type names. Use the following type names: Boolean, Integer, Long, Float, Double, String, or Time. Type names may be abbreviated to the first letter.
