did you mean this;

unsigned char low, high;
unsigned short val = 0x7867;

low = val & 0xFF;
high = val >> 8;

just assigning the value will loose data if it is greater than 8 bits;

unsigned char bt = (unsigned char)sixteenbit value

Hi jewee,
Simple, quick answer - you don't.

An unsigned short can hold all the values between 0 and USHRT_MAX inclusive. USHRT_MAX must be at least 65535.
