I need help to place the order of a string "864"into Big-endian before conversion to binary:

Private Sub Cmdendians_Click()
Dim strstrong As String, datastr As Byte
datastr = Len("864")
DecimalValue = datastr
BinaryValue = DecToBin(DecimalValue, 8)
Debug.Print DecToBin(DecimalValue, 8)
End Sub

Open in new window

There is no such thing for strings.

Endianess describes the order of bits. Most significant first or last. Normally it also means that we look at bytes ordered by that. Thus it makes only sense for numbers (word, dword, qword).

Thus what's your use-case?
