Problem with numeric field


Level 1


I am having trouble with my adobe responses file. I have compiled data from a  fillable form into a responses file. However, the data for one of the fields which is a numeric 9 digit field in the form is getting rounded to the nearest thousand in the responses file.

How do I fix this?

1. Does the numeric 9 digit field have Patterns (i.e. Display, Edit, Validation, Data) configured in Livecycle?

2. Do you use code to store the data in the responses file that might modify the data?

Thanks for the reply.

Pattern is set to 'num{zzzzzzzzzzzz9}'.

There is no code that I know of in responses file.


Level 1

Is that same pattern used for each of the tabs in the Patterns section?


Display (how the data will appear)

Edit (how the data must be entered)

Validation (how the data must be formatted for successful validation)

Data (how the data must be formatted for correct binding to occur)

[When retrieving data from the form file the data may be Display formatted a certain way but Data formatted a different way.]

There is another pattern that may better suit your needs:


How do the form file and the responses file pass data between each other e.g. binding, scripting, etc.?

If you use binding; what is the Data Format in the Binding tab set to Float or Integer?
