Zip Code datatype

 

Hi,

 

I am creating one field as ZIp Code. As there is no standard datatype available for zip, what would be the ideal datatype for Zip (Number or Text)?

 

How can i validate zip code?

 

Regards,

Devendra S

It should be Text as zip code/postal code may have characters other than integer. And to get the validation please visit :

Find "US Billing Zip Code" for sample.
