hi
hello I have a numeric string and I want to convert it to alpha numeric string, below I manage the conversion when the string is already an alpha numeric to numeric by the loop through each character now I want the opposite ie looping the numeric string by 2 characters on the entire string and convert it to Alpha numeric.

thx
