Display 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.
