1.Try the following code :

 put value(field "rich") into u
 if not voidp(u) and not listp(u) then put "It is a number"

 You might want to consider using integerp(u) which determines whether u is an integer returning a boolean variable.
 Alternatively you could evaluate the ASCII code for each character using chartonum(char 1 of u)

2.System dropdown menus in Director can be formed using the Installmenu 1 command, where field 1 is laid out along the following lines.

menu : file
save | saveme
open | openme


the first section is the text displayed in the menu, the second the handler or command to be executed when selected.

Cheers Mr Meier. Appreciate it.  I've actually already worked (1) using ASCII but can I make a field act as a drop down menu.
