Numerical data type is accepting text

Everytime I select a question to accept only numbers, it still accepts some text. How can I correct that or is it a bug in the Kobo setup?

Hi @melvinsteve and welcome to the community!

Can you show us screenshots of:

  • The way you choose question to accept only numbers. (step by step if you can)
  • An example of text accepted instead of numbers.

@melvinsteve, did you set the question type to integer?

Yes I did, however on iOS devices using the web tool, accepts alphabets and on Android the letter E is accepted

@melvinsteve, are you on Enketo or Collect Android App? Could you also take a screenshot from the server where you see the alphabets you entered in an integer question? That would also give us a backup to investigate.
