Unexplained formatting in field

If you look at this image, could someone explain why the SS Couns field is formatting the entry in this pattern? xxx-xx-xxxxxxx

I’ve even copied another text object which doesn’t format itself that way and pasted it into this slot, but it still formats itself this way. For example, I option-copied the SK Couns field with the same word in it and put it in this SS slot, renaming it SS Couns and it still reads Mag-en-talling.


The only thing I can think of is that you have unknowingly set the input pattern for the SS Couns field to ___-__-____ in the data sheet.

Just a guess…

Yep, that was it. Didn’t even know I could format the field that way. Took out the pattern, and it is fine now.
Thanks for your help!
