What is wrong with this arbitrary mask?

I tried searching for what I am looking for but couldn't find the words tod escribe it in a search.

Basically what I am looking to do is have an ID field with a format like the following:

 

MAT-9999-DWOR

 

The "MAT-" and "-DWOR" are static but also need to be downloadable with what ever numbers are entered in between. When I set this in the Arbitrary Mask field, the O comes back as an entry character.

 

What am I doing wrong?

You can't use an arbitrary masks for this, so you have to use a different approach. But before I suggest others, what exactly do you mean by "downloadable"? Do you mean when you export the data, when the data is submitted, or something else?
