    Phone number field is acting like a calculation.

    Asked by wolfpaw69 on February 10, 2016 at 04:00 PM

    I've got a field that asks for a phone number.  Depending if the person filling out the form is a buyer or agent, it will copy that number into another field.  When it copies it, it treats it like a calculation.  So if you put a number of 123-123-1234 the result would be -1234.

    You have to pass the value as a text instead of the number. It's currently in orange color with 0-9 which stands for a number value. You have to click that to make it dark with a-z which means a text.
