I'm using Powerbuilder 5.  I found a way to make sure the number is always entered with ###-##-#### using the edit mask.  I also found a way to default the value to 000-00-0000.  Now I need a way to validate the field to make sure it doesn't have spaces.  The #'s make sure it's numeric but it still lets the user enter spaces.  How can I make sure my #'s are numeric within the mask?

Is it in datawindow control or window control.

If it is a datawindow control then it must be number field and you will get no spaces.
If it is a window control then it will accept only numeric values if you will give in format ###-##-####.


Please let me know where you have this control in datawindow or window.

If in datawindow then must be number field.


Best regards

Hi,
put in Validation Expression
   isNumber(GetText())
it will catch the situation with spaces.
