Displaying all digits EAN numbers
FIlemaker Pro 11.0 v1
Mac OS X 10.6.3
I would like to be able to see 13 digits of EAN numbers in Table View and not the condensed version. is it possible?
EAN "numbers" are text (the leading digit/s can be zero) and should be stored in a Text field.
actually the last digit is a check digit
so we could consider EAN code as a number...
but changing field type to text it's ok
Checksum can be (and often is) applied to text data. A number is something that you use for numerical operations. You do not use EAN numbers (or phone numbers, credit card numbers, IP numbers, ZIP codes, etc.) to add, subtract, multiply or divide.
