Numeric Data Type
A field comprised exclusively of numbers, such as a dollar amount. A list of numbers is a group of numbers separated by commas with ranges of the numbers separated by hyphens (-).
For example, 1-2,5 is a valid entry and would mean that you wanted to select choices 1, 2, and 5. Also, the entry 1,2,5 would mean the same thing.
