Tried to change a number field in ACT2011 Premiun  from   1,234 to 1.234

Hello William,

I assume this is for entering information in the field on your layout. I do not see where you can choose a default format for a number field. You would need to use a character field and for the optional field format use this:




This will allow entry of only numbers and limit it to the number of "#" symbols you use. Sorry for example above, the max number would be 9.999.
