How data type conversion is possible in Outsystems? 

There are most of the data type is almost similar and can be convert to another data type .. like as below

1. integer to text

2. list to records

3. Entity to Structure 


How we can convert those data type to another data type.
and how to use Convert.ToString() like to convert date, integer, decimal in string or text data or vice versa.

I don't know if I undestood your question, but in this documentation you will find all possible data conversion, with some examples.
