      Data entry - limiting the number of digits that can be entered

      Post

      Dear Forum users,

       

      Is there a way to restrict a data entry operator from entering a designated number of digits into a field? 

       

      In my case, the 'ID number' has to (and can) only be 9 digits long - no more and no less.

       

      I can see that there is a 'Maximum number of characters' section in the validation section, but no 'minimum number of characters'.

       

      Any assistance would be much appreciated.

       

      Cheers
