Display Settings PropertiesDisplay unformat


An expression that defines how to translate the displayed value into the value saved in the record. The Display unformat expression is required if the field has a Display format and is editable.


Specify how this field should be unformatted before changes are saved in the database. Enter an Xbasic expression that uses the <value> placeholder to un-format the data. It may be necessary to wrap the <value> placeholder in the convert_type() function to ensure that <value> returns the correct data type that your un-format expression expects.
