    Thanks Sathish, it works fine. But if Arabic is entered, I should check the special characters as well as English alphabets. I have two different sets of validations to be applied if English or Arabic. Difficulty in identifying whether text entered is Arabbic or English. Pls note Arabic is entered from right to left and it contains several combinations of letters . Thanks GAK
