If I have a number, say 00153 which i have read in and it is set to a string variable 'number1'.

So number1 = 00153;

How do i convert that into an array so that each numbers is a diffrent element in the array.

I assume you are trying to break apart a single string.

Simply iterate through the string with an index.

So for example "00153" as the value for number1, written in code as number1[0] would return 0, and number1[4] would give you a 3.

Note the index starts at 0, and there is an extra LF/CR at the end (number1[5,6]), which will return a value, just not a number.

Do you want a string array?

            string number1 = "00153";

            string[] digits = new string[number1.Length];
            for (int i = 0; i < number1.Length; i++)
            {
                digits[i] = number1.Substring(i, 1);
            }

            foreach (string digit in digits)
            {
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(digit);
            }

Or did you want an Array of ints?

"00153".ToCharArray() will give you a char array

if the variable is strTest then
char[] fields = strTest.ToCharArray();
