How do I encode numbers using OEM 437?

I am writing a file using the encoding code below...

It works fine when all of the data is a straight text string, but I am running into problems when numbers are involved.  For instance, the number 45 is treated as 4 and 5(the resulting output data is 3435), not fifty (should spit out the character "-" which is also 2D).  Any ideas as to what I am missing?  Thanks.

Figured it out, so for anyone else.....


That was the solution, I needed to cast the value as a char.
