comment APA Style: Journal Vol(Num) sometimes, but only Vol other times
I can't reproduce this in JabRef. "Journal" is a required and completely standard BibTeX field for the @article entry. It has nothing to do with biblatex. When I add the custom field to the Optional Fields as I describe, all of the optional fields are displayed correctly. Maybe you have an olde version of JabRef?

If the answer solves your problem, then yes, we should close this one. If you're still stuck, you can edit this question to reflect the new problem.

I use BibDesk, but both popular reference managers can add custom fields. I've updated the answer to show how.

comment APA Style: Journal Vol(Num) sometimes, but only Vol other times
Without some kind of meta-data in the bibliography as to the numbering system of any particular volume, I don't think this is possible. With such data (e.g. a custom field, or an external config file with a list of journals that have one numbering or another) it would be possible to do. Leaving the information out of the bib file is not a good solution, since that will remove it for any other style one might use.
