Working with a .NET web page that needs to write data retrieved from a data base to a local file where numbers are converted to a two byte string and then written to a file. Basically the old MKI$ function. Seems like any number higher than 127 will be written out as a two byte string due to the way high ASCII numbers are handled now. Is there any function or string definition that will still handle high ASCII number up to 255 and let the one byte string be written to a file? Thanks very much for any help.
