Hello Jan,

i have a problem with your last script :

  * There was an Execution Error at 8:05:55 AM
Error description:  matchChunk: error in pattern expression
Object: field id 1004 of card id 1002 of stack "/HD/Desktop 
Folder/scripts rev/numeric fld.rev"
get matchText(tNumber,"([-]?)([0-9]*)[\.]?([0-9*)",tMinusHold, 
tMainNumber, tDecimalHold)
Value: unmatched []

I don't know so much about the MatchText and regular Expression.

I work with Rev 1.1.1 and Mac OS 9.2

Can you help me.
