Gd evening,

my program takes input of 2 ASCII characters. However, when I store this data, it has to be in 4 byte format thus eg: 18 has to be 0018 before it can be stored. Could anyone enlightment me on this subject ?

very easy :

TheInputString = "00" & TheInputString

the above one adds 00 to everything -- therefore 100 would become 00100 not 0100.

if TheInputString <= 9 then TheFinalString = "000" & TheInputString
if TheInputString <= 99 then TheFinalString = "00" & TheInputString
if TheInputString <= 999 then TheFinalString = "0" & TheInputString
if TheInputString <= 9999 then TheFinalString = TheInputString

use that instead. that makes single digit number 000#, double digit numbers 00##, triple digit numbers 0### and quad-digit numbers ####
