Use the CInt() function.

For example:

Dim A As Integer
Dim SSN As String

SSN = "177475884"

A = CInt("1234")

B = CInt(SSN)

sorry - also need the reverse

Use CStr() or Str() to convert numbers to strings.

From VB Help:
"The Str function recognizes only the period (.) as a valid decimal separator. When different decimal separators may be used (for example, in international applications), use CStr to convert a number to a string."

You may also use Val() and Format()

first of all, I only need to convert one character.
I need the ansi / ascii equviolent of the character to be returned
example: the character '2' should translate to 50 (decimal)
WOW, talk about changing your question as you go along ...

Use the Chr() function to return the character for a given integer.

Use the Asc() function to return a integer for a given character.

Chr(65) returns 'A'
Asc('A') returns 65
