           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
