retval=VAL(this.value)

The integer portion of the number will be placed in the vairiable retval. This will only work provided the beginning of the value is a number, in which case it will convert everything that is numeric to the first non-numeric character. So "001A00" become 1, "992A00" becomes 992, etc.


When all you have is a nail, everything looks like a hammer...
