aka, List Column not appearing in Managed Propperty Selector.

I am not sure if I have blogged about this before, but I do recall falling for this stumbling block earlier. If I have blogged it, then this is a worthy reminder

When wanting to map a crawled property as a managed property, please be cautious when declaring the managed property to select the appropriate type, because when you click that "Add Mapping" button to select the crawled properties to map to, the crawled properties that are going to be displayed are filtered by type you declared.

Also note columns declared as Number in a list are of type Decimal and not Integer.

I'm stumbling on this block...

I declared a column as a Number and it shows up as type Decimal as you said...
But I really need it to show up as an Integer type so I can add it as a second mapping to an existing integer.

So what column type can I use to make an Integer type crawled property?
So far, I don't see any "custom" integer type crawled properties. All the integer crawled properties are system columns.
