    z68-unit-price, z68-total-price, z30-price should be defined as numeric

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    Description:
    These price fields are (correctly) defined as numeric:
    z75_i_listed_price, z31_sum, z68_e_listed_price, z601_active_sum, z601_local_sum

    but the following are all defined as X(10) (or X13) -- meaning that computations can not be performed on them (since they contain dollar signs and other non-numeric characters):

    z68-unit-price, z68-total-price, z30-price

    Resolution:
    These fields are designed to have the price entered as "twenty dollars" or "20".

    Changing this would be an enhancement request and would be problematic since so much non-numeric data has been entered into these fields.
