     FM13: Text field, used as key, works only when a number is included in text entered?

     Only validation on field is "not blank", user editable.

     The effect is that when a new record is created and text without a number in it is used as an ID
     then subsequent data, when entered, simply disappears from the layout when the background is clicked.

     This would also happen if, for instance, I had set ID as a numeric field and then entered text data.

     But this field is specified as Text and works fine if text containing a number is used, but not if no number is present in the text.

     Any suggestions or approaches are most welcome.

     Thank you
