Debugging a program written by someone else (not available)  The following statement yields different results depending on the decimal number:    String = Format(Hex(integer))

If the integer = 3342528 then String = 0x3300C0
If the Integer = 3342544 then String = 0x3300 , not 0x3300D0 as expected.

Why?

Don't use the Format function. You will get the desired result.

String = Hex(Value)
