I have an unbound field on my form. A valid entry in this box could be any long integer number up to nine positions.
I have the format defined as 000000000. I got a cancellation today when I tried to treat the entered field as numeric.
The field has been on the form several weeks without incident.
Today I was notified of a cancellation and the error displayed was "13 Type Mismatch". Apparently I need to do more to restrict the input to numeric only and limit the length to no more than 9 digits.
I can't figure out how they got something in there that led to a type mismatch. In my testing I can't get anything in there other than a number.
I was able to get an overflow error by entering 1 followed by 11 0's.
How can I tighten up the entry so only digits with a max length of 9 can be entered?
