I've got a 14 digit number and I want to convert it to hex :-

10101300193100

and I want to convert it so the hex value looks like this then when I turn hex on file edit :-

1110130
0030910

It's an account number so it's always a positive number

My dfsort knowledge is a bit rusty and the old brain matter isn't working quite as well as it once did, I'm sure 12 months ago I could of done this in my sleep !

help would be greatly appreciated !

cheers

Steve

Well, it's a Binary Coded Decimal that you want. "Converting it to hex" is not a clear description.

You are going to have to multiply your ZD by 10, giving you the PD (one byte longer than needed for your final result) then ignore the right-most byte,
