actually the last digit is a check digit

- From the right to left, start with odd position, assign the odd/even position to each digit.
- Sum all digits in odd position and multiply the result by 3.
- Sum all digits in even position.
- Sum the results of step 3 and step 4.
- divide the result of step 4 by 10. The check digit is the number which adds the remainder to 10.

so we could consider EAN code as a number...

but changing field type to text it's ok

EAN "numbers" are text (the leading digit/s can be zero) and should be stored in a Text field.
