I have an issue with how the next barcode displays when autofilled when
added a new item to a record. In my autobarode setting, I have
EAN-Incremental 13 Barcode selected. When creating a new item for a record,
the system does autofill the barcode field however the formatting however
it shows up in scientific number format rather than just integers or plain

For example, A barcode we use should look like this:


However, in the form, it fills something like this:


Converting that to a real number, I get 34517100047199300000 which is too
large/too many digits. I cannot just lop off the extra zeros. I would like
to understand how that service works and what to try to get it working

Thank you,
