An easy one here, I think!

I have a channel field that is a text field. This field holds a numerical value, (between 1-12)

I am creating a safecracker form to add entires from the front end. Can I use a select drop down with the values 1-12 to complete this text field or does the actual channel field need to be a dropdown type?

Yep.

<select name="your_custom_field_name">
  <option value="1">1</option>
  <option value="2">2</option>
</select>

And if you're using safecracker to edit, this is what I use:

<select name="your_custom_field_name">
  <option value="1"{if '{your_custom_field_name}'=='1'} selected{/if}>1</option>
  <option value="2"{if '{your_custom_field_name}'=='2'} selected{/if}>2</option>
</select>

I've not directly tested but I'm fairly sure it's no problem to use a dropdown field on the front-end via a safecracker form to pass that value. Both a regular text input and the select boxes rely on the value parameter and this will be what's sent through on form submission so it should be fine.
