No, this is trying to convert the string "stsGetSerialNumber" from hex 
to decimal.

Try this ....

on mouseUp
  put stsGetSerialNumber("C:") into tmpVar
  put baseConvert(tmpVar,16,10) into fld 1
end mouseUp

if that doesn't work, try putting the value at each stage and see if 
it's obvious.  (is there any extra character in tmpVar ?)
If not, get back to us - WITH the info of what each step gave you.
