It's been way too many years since I did commercial programming on
databases and I've forgotten some of the terms (formats) for numerical
data. I'm trying to create a simple database of local
facilities/doctors/stores with Base using the wizards. The formats that
are giving me trouble are:
Text[VARCHAR] - a variable number of type CHAR?
Text(fix)[CHAR] - does that mean a fixed number of CHAR?
Numeric[NUMERIC] > How do these differ?
I looked in LibreOffice help but couldn't find the definitions. Some
help would be appreciated.
For instance, which format is used for a telephone number?
