Dear all,

I now realize that this error message comes up for variables declared as integer / Positive integer / Positive or Zero integer. It does not happen if a variable is declared as a number. I think the integer data type is declared in code as required. I think it would be best if error messages are not flagged for integer data types as well if one leaves the field blank on data entry.

Dear all,

Has someone experienced this? When I try to save my data entry form (event program without registration), it shows error messages for all my number fields “Value must be a number.:”, particularly those I have left blank. Is this a bug? I have not declared any of these variables as mandatory but this error message shows up for all my number variables whenever I am saving. How can I go round this?
