When I use validate= "integer" and required="yes" on one tag only the required option works. So if the user doesn't enter the field they are prompted to do so. But if they enter an invalid field, e.g. Aaa it goes through. If I take out the required="yes" then it validates that a value is intered but doesn't check if it is an integer.

This works for me.  It may be a problem with your code. Can you post it?

<cfdump var="#FORM#">
<cfform name="f">
	<cfinput type="text" name="myField" required="true" validate="integer">
	<input type="submit">
</cfform>

Sorry, pasted  the working version. This is the non-working version.

<Cfform action="opv.cfm" method="GET">
<table cellspacing="5" align="center">
	<tr><td><strong>Product code</strong></td><td><cfinput type="text" name="pc"   message = "Enter PC Number"
    validate = "integer"  required="yes"  maxlength="3" size="3" validateAt = "onBlur"></td></tr>
	<tr><td><strong>Model</strong></td><td><cfinput type="text" name="model" required = "yes"  size="6" message = "Enter model"  validateAt = "onBlur">
</td></tr>
	<tr><td><strong>PIC System</strong></td><td>
		<cfselect name="pic">
			<option value="">live</option>
			<option value="t">test</option>
			<option value="t2">test2</option>
		</cfselect>
	</td></tr>
	<tr><td colspan="2"><br></td></tr>
	<tr align="center"><td colspan="2"> <INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="submitName"    style="width:250px; background-color:pink;"  onClick="this.value ='Processing' ; this.style.backgroundColor='#eee';   this.disabled=1; this.form.submit(); "  VALUE = "Click Me Once"  ></td></tr>
<table>
</cfform>

I think the inline javascript on your button is interfering. Try putting it in a function. Then call it onsubmit.

<script type="text/javascript">
	function submitForm() {
		var button = document.getElementById("submitButton");
 		button.value ='Processing'; 
 		button.style.backgroundColor='#eee';   
 		button.disabled=1; 
	}
</script>
<Cfform action="opv.cfm" method="GET" onsubmit="submitForm();">
<table cellspacing="5" align="center">
	<tr><td><strong>Product code</strong></td><td><cfinput type="text" name="pc"   message = "Enter PC Number"
    validate = "integer"  required="yes"  maxlength="3" size="3" validateAt = "onBlur"></td></tr>
	<tr><td><strong>Model</strong></td><td><cfinput type="text" name="model" required = "yes"  size="6" message = "Enter model"  validateAt = "onBlur">
</td></tr>
	<tr><td><strong>PIC System</strong></td><td>
		<cfselect name="pic">
			<option value="">live</option>
			<option value="t">test</option>
			<option value="t2">test2</option>
		</cfselect>
	</td></tr>
	<tr><td colspan="2"><br></td></tr>
	<tr align="center"><td colspan="2"> 
	<INPUT TYPE="submit" id="submitButton" NAME="submitName" VALUE = "Click Me Once">
</td></tr>
<table>


</cfform>
