Checking for numeric or alpha values


I can't seem to find a way to find out if a field contains a numeric value. Is there anything within standard mapping that would allow me to do that?

Many thanks

you are right that there is no standard function.

But you could use a simple UDF (with parameter a ):

>int i = 0;

>try {

>i = Integer.parseInt (a);

>return "0";


>return "1";
