Pupil Tracking supports the 3 field types below:

**Text**

A text field will accept alphanumeric data( e.g. 1,2,3,A,B,C). However when this data is exported to Excel it will still be treated as text. You may need to manually convert the text to numbers within Excel to perform calculations etc.

**Whole Number**

A whole number field will only accept whole numbers (e.g. 1,2,3). Any text entered into this field will appear as 0 (zero).

**Decimal**

A decimal field will only accept numbers to 1 decimal place (e.g. 1.1,1.2,1.3). Any text entered into this field will appear as 0.0 (zero point zero).
