Here is some code that could do it.

/*code  myword already contains desired value*/

__int64 temp;
temp=myword;
char buffer[50];

_i64toa(temp,buffer,10);

CString str=buffer;

/*end code*/

Good Luck!

A DWORD is 32 bits, not 64, so you could use _itoa(), not __i64toa().  (Although i64toa() would work, its overkill.).

However this is not a portable solution--if that matters.  A portable solution would be to use sprintf() or to output the information to a string stream object and then obtain the string from the string stream object.

It could be overkill. I was not sure whether or not the fact that DWORD was an unsigned value would cause overflow for the integer conversion function parameter.

Good point.  if the DWORD is outside of the signed int range you would need to use i64toa().
