is it possible to change field types from within a script
Posted on 2006-07-17
i have a layout defining a payment plan:
the amount field is defined as numeric and displayed as numeric with the $ sign
however, for the last month i would like to replace the amount with asterics as in this example
1st month $100.00 numeric field
2nd month $100.00 numeric field
3rd month $100.00 numeric field
4th month ****** change to text field
my question is: using a script, is there a way to change the fieldtype for the one field (4th month) on the layout to go from numberic to text so the asterics will show on final printing and then back to numeric after it prints.
if i have asterics in the numeric fields now they dont print.
