Re: How to deal with a phone number field ?

Hello guys,

Yes, I'm using sqlite and Glom under Windows Vista. So, should I bug report this issue ?

Thanks for your attention,

Are you using sqlite? With sqlite, numbers are currently stored as
"real" type (equivelant double in C++) in the database, which may lead
to a notation such as '1.23457e+07'.

Maybe we'll have to do something else to implement Glom's numeric type
with sqlite (sqlite has only types for "integer" and "real", and Glom
currently uses real because it can't guess whether a numeric type is
meant as being integral one or not).
