    I wanted to limit the field to 5 numbers but instead it places limits on the value. Is there any other way to add a limit to the amount of characters that can be input in the number box?

    Yes it is possible to limit the number of fields. I have seen your input mask as shown below and I have noted that you have enabled on 3 numbers between the brackets and 7 numbers after the brackets. In a way you have set a limitation here using the input mask.

    Well I meant for the CE ID field not the telephone number. The telephone is fine. I want the user to be limited to only inputting 5 numbers on the CE ID field, nothing more or less. I tried fixing the advanced option but i believe the option only works with vales/total amount. Am I correct?

    Now the field labeled CE ID wont update on preview mode. I have the value limit turned off and its been off for a while but its still running with the old parameters. I turned it off but it still hasn't updated for a good while. Whats up with that?

    I have created a clone of your form  by using short entry field and the setting mask to it to only allow 5 digit numbers only.

    Kindly review it below and confirm if the solution works for you.
