Re: Suggested size for Postal code, and changing the field attributes with cpyf



fixed


I guess you could but and edit mask would be a good time to attach as not all will go be going the first 5 in the 5+4+3 current structure of Zip codes in USA.
Rule might be if +4 not there blank out +4 and +3
If + 3 missing blank out that only

We keep postal codes in a variety of formats including alpha-5, numeric
5, numeric 5 + numeric 4, alpha 9.

Two questions:
1 - What is a generally accepted size * description today? (I recently
received mail from the US Government with a zip code of 12345-0123000)
2 - Is it possible, with CPYF, to map those various formats to one
common new format?
