Hello cmdolcet

Try using the VB vbNullChar constant.

Regards,

mwvisa1
Public MM_UC_Lenght_MSB As String = vbNullChar
MM_UC_Lenght_MSB = Strings.Asc(MM_UC_Lenght_MSB) 
MM_UC_Lenght_MSB = Conversion.Hex(MM_UC_Lenght_MSB) 
MM_Configuration_Data_Array.Add(MM_UC_Lenght_MSB)

ACK has a decimal value in ASCII of 6 if I am not mistaken, so would be like this: Chr(6).
Similarly, you can set other values based on their char int value using the Chr() function.
