The number field is designed for all about numbers. All numerical values can be stored using the number field type, such as how many tickets are left for a conference and what is the ticket price. Furthermore, you can customize various settings like prefixes, suffixes, and format settings. This allows you to trade any unit symbol or numerical units such as currencies, %, miles, or all other units on your preferences.
