Checking for text values in a text field

Bit of a dodgy explanation so sorry about that.

I have an agent which loops through all unprocessed documents.  It looks for a text field (called equipment code) and if the value contains a number only I use CInt so that I can determine what the numeric value is and then set various flags on the document.

The problem is if the text field contains non numeric values a type mismatch error will be generated and the agent fails.

So I want to be able to check for non numeric values. If text is found then I do not do the CInt and move to the next document.  Otherwise I do the CInt and continue with the rest of the agent.

Surely can't be that hard!?
Thanks.

Instead of:

set doc = xyzyz.getFirstDocument
Do until doc is nothing
  fieldValue = doc.someValue(0)
  intValue = cint(fieldValue)
  set doc = xyzyz.getNextDocument(doc)
loop



Use this:

set doc = xyzyz.getFirstDocument
Do until doc is nothing
  fieldValue = doc.someValue(0)
  if isNumeric(fieldValue) then 'new line!!! 1 of 2
    intValue = cint(fieldValue)
  end if 'new line!!!! 2 of 2
  set doc = xyzyz.getNextDocument(doc)
loop
