Is there an easier way to specify a field that only accept numbers? The question I want to ask on my survey is How old are you?

The way I did it is to provide a drop-down menu by specifying all the numbers but this way seems odd to me. In my case I CANNOT USE a calendar, as this will demand the specific DOB of the participants and might concern their privacy!

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
