"field format" of a character field problem in web 2009

Version: 2009 Premium

 

In a character field, if the "field format" is defined the web version does not allow a blank field allow "allow blank" is also defined. The desktop version functions properly though.

What is the exact problem you are experiencing? How is the response via the web diffferent from the desktop experience?

I have a character field that I use for a SSN:

 

"allow blank" is checked

"field format" is set to ###-##-###

 

 

If the field is blank in the web version it will not save until the field has data.

If the field is blank in the desktop version it works fine.

You are correct. I was able to reproduce the problem on my own database. I will list it with Sage as a bug for you.
