You can use Number():
example: stats.st4.text = Number(loadedData) + Number(loadedData);
thanks for the answer that worked as expected. This solved my problem, but now another come up. I could save all of us some time if I posted the whole line from start.
As you can see bellow there were more before and after the addition, so when I test your code alone it works fine, but when I add the rest, again I get "32" and not "5". Keep in mind that I only need to "add" the loadedData + loadedData , the rest of the plus(+) signs are just to include the rest of the loadedData in my text field.
stats.st1.text =loadedData + "/" + Number(loadedData) + Number(loadedData) + " " + loadedData;
Thanks again for the answer
Just to save you some time, I added some more brackets before and after your code and it worked, I need to thank you again, if it wasn't your answer I would be still stack,
These are brackets: [ ]
These are parentheses: ( )
It would be ideal if your data loader converted the appropriate fields to the correct data types, instead of leaving the code that uses the data to fend for itself.
I do hope you understand why your issue was occurring, and why using Number() fixed it.
