Pass text to Number/Quantity field

Hi All,

I need to pass text to a number field which in turn needs to be displayed in drop down list.

Is there any way I can achieve this?

Kindly advise.

Thanks,

Vinodha.R

    Hi Vinodh,

    If you have declared the field type as numeric and try to enter text value then you will get the error.

    So, i would suggest to change the field type to CHAR with required length and use it.

      No Sudeesh, i can't change it to CHAR ,as I am modifying the User fields in standard Network (CN22) which is the Quantity field from AFVU-USR05.

    In NUMC field, you can enter number as well as character.

    Hi Vinodh,

    I agree with Narendra.

    Either you can use different field for given requirement like USR00 to USR03.
