Hello. I'm looking for some advice on creating entry forms. How should we determine how much space to allocate for certain fields, for example, like contact information; and in the case of numerical values, especially for financial related applications, what would be a reasonable maximum limit, if there is such a thing?

If such limits are not imposed, is there any established way to present them in printed reports? Ellipsis for numbers aren't very practical, and there's only so much that we can reduce the font size to.

Are there any set of established rules which might perhaps explain these standards?

Thank you.
