Single digit numbers cannot be used as Options for Option Sets


Hi devs,

DHIS2 prohibits you from adding single-digit numbers as Options for Option
Sets, irrespective of whether the Option Set has a Value Type of "Positive
Integer", "Positive or Zero Integer", "Number" or Text. Hence the numbers
1-9 cannot be used as Options.

Is there a reason for this?

As a work-around I tried using 01-09, but get the error message "Value must
be a [positive] integer", except for the Option Sets with value type "Text"
for which it was successfully added. This is not optimal though as
calculations cannot be done with text fields.
