Variables - text variable for a number value


I may be missing something, but the only way I can pass a zero from a field (so a checkbox is checked) is by using a text variable. When I try using a number variable, the default zero, as well as a typed zero, does not trigger the checking of the checkbox.

I am OK with using a text variable for passing numbers, providing there are no issues that I am not aware of. Would it be OK to use a text variable to hold/pass numbers?

A quick side question...why can't we edit the type for a variable?
