newb myself, but:

[code]<?php
$value="473";
if(ereg("[0-9]", $value))
{echo "yup";}

echo $value;
die();
?>[/code]

does work no matter the number 4 or 473 (and will not return the "yup" if it has no number.  Per php.net, preg_match is usually faster though - I do not know if ereg will suit your needs - but perhaps that will steer you in a direction suited to what you are attempting.
