iX Developer 2.10
The user needs to enter some (up to) 10 character string data to be transferred to the PLC. I've set up an analog numeric with display format "String". When downloaded to the panel the alpha-numeric keyboard pops up (indicating that it's expecting string) but I get FormatException message if I enter text. It will accept integers (signed 16 bit) but not decimals so, for some reason, it's still a numeric only entry.

Any ideas how to get it to accept string / text?

Got it. The tag has to be defined as STRING<length>.
