Are there any script trigger anywhere, catching keystrokes?
Best regards Magnus Fransson.
What is the error message that is thrown by the date field?
Are the number fields auto enter calculations or calculation type?
Check for ANY field level or layout level triggers.
Put an instance of a suspect number field on the layout with no formatting instructions and set it to show as entered in Inspector.
Does the new number field show correct data in the number field?
Try setting left and right padding to zero in the Inspector.
You might have done that already, but one way to locate the problem would be to take a look at the Data Viewer and check the actual data independently of any layout element. If it shows up correctly there, you know you have to look at the field formatting.
Also to check for triggers, simply open the Script Debugger while entering data and switching a layout to see what fires and if it might interrupt the data entry.
Layout level Script Trigger was the problem. Thanks for your assistance with getting my 3:00 AM brain back in the fight. This is my second run in with layout level scrip triggers biting my but. Some day perhaps I will learn. Once again, thanks for the assist.
