Looking at your previous example list, you're right you have a mixture. But the 
question I have is how do you know *what* is suppose to be there? Is every 6th 
item in your list suppose to be an integer? You have to do a bit of critical 
thinking here. How is the program suppose to know what to use? Here is the one 
know I can provide. You know that numbers will always be represented as real 
numbers. The question is knowing that, what can you trigger off of to determine 
when to make it an integer? Once you determine that bit of logic, figuring out 
the code will be a piece of cake.

In the web-page only one "select list" which contains all mixture of 
data? And the integer is the pain of mine. :(


Thanks
