how to tell the class of a variable (non-numeric) in a program?

2 views (last 30 days)
I am reading a header from files. Most of the time, this header is a cell, but sometime it can be a structure with the cell being a field in the struct.
I need to identify the class of the header after I read the file so I can program accordingly.
Any suggestions?
