Convert integer to string

Hi,

How can I convert from integer to string?

I have to convert this: 
#ToString(QSearchResult.ASABySecs)#  

This is integer in the database: QSearchResult.ASABySecs




<cfif isdefined('QSearchResult.ASABySecs')> 
<Cell ss:StyleID="Detail">
<Data ss:Type="String">#ToString(QSearchResult.ASABySecs)# </Data>
</Cell>
</cfif>

Open in new window


Thanks,
Lulu

Excel will automatically interpret values in a cell as a number if they look like a number, but you had the correct command.   What is it doing that you don't like?

<Data ss:Type="String">

Because the field is stored as a int but I have it exported to excel as string <Data ss:Type="String">

It gives me the yellow excel error.

Please take a look at the attached image.

I opened up excel created a document and saved it as an xml 2003 document.  I changed a column with a number in it to text and here was the generated xml:

  <Cell ss:StyleID="s62"><Data ss:Type="Number">2</Data></Cell>

Open in new window


This: ss:StyleID="s62"  on the cell is what makes the data appear as text and gets rid of the warning when you open the file.

It looks like you want to store it as a number then, not as text.    In your image, the "2" is text and asking you if you want to treat it as a number.   I would think you would want the 2 to be a number, yes?
