Title

Canadian Postal Code Field, Entry and Validation

Post

Hello,

I’m a novice Filemaker user having difficulties create a “proper” Canadian postal code field.

I’ve read several threads on postal codes for Filemaker and they all went over my head!

Following are two posts that I’ve read through:

http://www.fmsource.com/index.php/topic/48316-masque-de-saisie-code-postal-canadien-resolu/

From what I understand. I will need to create two fields. One a “regular” field and the other a “mask” field. My regular field is named, PostalCode and the mask field is named, PostalCodeMask.

The objective is a follows;

field length, 7 characters, LetterNumberLetterSpaceNumberLetterNumber. Here’s an example, A0A 0A0.

All suggestions and tips are appreciated!
