what you can do is creat a table with two colums number and number_charater
populate it from 1 to 100 and 1000,million,billion and then write a function which divied the number into parts and retrived the character value from the table.
if you want a example let me know

Just wanted to add my 2 cents regarding the suggestion to create a table. The datawindow is a powerful object. You don't always need to create a table to take advantage of its power. Embedding data in a datawindow object and assigning the datawindow object to a datastore lets you take advantage of the datastore's Find and Filter and Sort functionality.
