In 6.10, Field masks are defined in File Cabinet Administration.
Expand the File Cabinet. Expand Dialogs. Expand the required dialog. Select the field and expand it. The File Mask option is in the field option list.
A database field cannot be converted from one type to another. If you wish to change the field type then you must create a new field. The data from the INT field will then need to be copied to the new Text field at database level.
