Hi, does it make any difference whether or not I will use "-" in the Unique number field.

Example "1111111111-222222".  We have such field in master file for reporting purposes.

Unique field is the main field we use for programming, groupping, indexing, reporting etc.

Is this OK to use field "1111111111-222222" or I have to use field "1111111111222222" as primary key and use field ""1111111111-222222" for reporting purposes
