    Aaaah! I am trying so hard to list some little roos on the auction. I keep getting the message, "You must enter a number, not characters!". I don't know where the problem is. I have ONLY numbers in all of the spaces for numbers. Do I leave the decimal points off? Even though is shows them in the examples? I'm going crazy here! No matter what I do I get that same message every time. I'm using the number keys on my laptop to enter the numbers so I know they are numbers....

    You shouldn't use the "$" sign, but use the decimal.

    For example, if the listing was was priced for $20.00, put in 20.00 in the box.

    Went to our main computer and re-entered the listing so I could take a screen shot to show you and it accepted the listing. Entered it exactly the same [​IMG]
    Glad it posted.

    I don't think so... I entered it many, many times. Just kept giving me the same error message. Glad it's solved!

    Sometimes when I have problems like that a total page refresh will fix it. Yes, you'll lose what you've entered, so copy whatever text you need to copy and then hit the Control key along with the F5 Function button. Worth a shot if it happens again.
