    Hello a1119989,

    The "$" is actually not a alphabet and that is the reason you are seeing the validation error. To solve your problem, you need to simply set the validation as "None". Please check the screenshot below:

    If you want to display "$" and still ensure that the input is a number, you should set the validation as "Numeric" and then set the "Hint Example" as "$" text. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Please check the following cloned form and see if this will be an acceptable solution for the requirement you are having:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41388967902973? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.
