[combine] output numbers?

July 11, 2012 | 9:48 pm

Hi everyone,

I got a strange problem:
I use [combine] to combine to number as one. For example, If I got 12 and 4 it gives me "124" or if I got 2 and 9 it gives me "29" …
The problem is that combine output symbols and not number and I can not send it to a number box.
Any Idea how I can do that?
Here is my patch:
