i want to convert decimal array to byte array.
for example: i want to reverse this code.

Dim buffer As Byte() = {5, 6, 7, 9, 122, 45}
Dim float As Decimal = BitConverter.ToInt64(buffer, 0)
Watch Question

Depends how its stored, but BitConverter.ToDouble may be your friend. That's assuming it's in IEE754 format. Where are you getting the data from in the first place?
