Number fields are used to store numeric data: the digits 09, a decimal point, and a sign (+ or -). You use a Number field when you want to be able to sort numerically (rather than alphabetically), perform calculations on the field, or use the data in a Summary field (as the object of a summary calculation in a report, for example). The table below shows the names and descriptions of the Number fields you'll create for the Main layout.
In the Define Database dialog box (see page 10), enter Bond_Denomination in the Field Name box, select Number from the Type drop-down list, and click Create. Repeat this procedure to create the other Number fields in the table.
