The Cardtext field number format has the following limitations:

Maximum number:    999,999
Minimum number:    0 (no negative numbers)
Decimals:          Rounded to the nearest number. Cardtext cannot
                   express decimals.

If these limitations are exceeded, Word will display the message:

Error! Number cannot be represented in specified format.

Some examples of the Cardtext number format are as follows:

{=\* Cardtext 15}      Fifteen
{=\* Cardtext 20+15}   Thirty-Five
{=\* Cardtext 12.75}   Thirteen
