    Is there a way to have a numeric field (ie a year such as 2015) and then have a condition set to test by "greater than" a criterion?

    Sorry - I found that I can use the Number Field instead of a text field that has numeric content, so I have solved the issue.

    Thank you for taking the time letting us know you have found the solution.

    You are correct on this.

    Even if you set a Textbox fields' validation to Numeric, you will not be able to use it in Condition Logic as a numeric value.


    So, it is best to use the Number field which is naturally a numeric field.
