Hi All,

I am using Classic PB 12.6, build 3506. I have a column in datawindow where i masked it as 10 digit numeric (##########). When i enter any 9th numeric value then it changed in any other numeric value and also changed the value of 8th digit.

EX:- if existing value is 12345678 and i enter 9 then value changed as 123456792.

Please suggest.

What is the datatype of the column? Perhaps you have entered a number that is larger than the maximum.

Column datatype is number. I also tried with long, ulong, decimal, but same issue exist.

Masking properly working with string datatype column's.


I believe that 8 digits is the limit for the number datatype. If you are going to have more digits, you need to change to a datatype that supports more digits.

Hi Vikrant;

Build 3506 is he initial release of PB 12.6 GA. There have been a plethora of EBF's released since then. You might want to download the latest (build 4139 from June, 2017) and retest this issue.

Regards ... Chris
