Setting specific number of characters

You are asking for two different things:

length(field)=x

would be for a specific number of characters (swap x for 3). But, this would also allow values that are not three digit numbers, like "HAT". Do you need it to be only numbers? Decimal values OK (would make a three digit number more characters...)?

would length(getasnumber(field)) solve to only allow numbers?

i hadnt thought of decimals, but there will never be an instance when they are needed.

basically i have a lot of fields that require either two, three or four digit whole numbers. i dont want to allow any other values in these fields.

sorry if i dont explain this well!

hey that is slick, but what if the number is 001? would that still work if i changed to >=001? these are specific codes so even if it is a single digit number, the leading zeros have to be there. thanks!
