Hi DImirC,

maybe this snippet from Harvey Triana will help

By example (buil in memory an Integer):

'//Integer bytes
Private Type udtIntBytes
    B1 As Byte
    B2 As Byte
End Type

'//Integer
Private Type udtInt
    n As Integer
End Type

Private Sub Test()
    Dim MyInt As udtInt
    Dim b     As udtIntBytes

    MyInt.n = 2001

    LSet b = MyInt
End Sub

b contain the two bytes of Integer.

inverse process is

int1 = byte2 + (byte1 * 256)
