How can I convert numeric to string?

How can I convert numeric to string?

How can I convert numeric to string?

Dear friends,

  I want to calculate numeric (integer/float) to string. How couldI do that? Thanks

RE: How can I convert numeric to string?

Here is a page out of MSDN on conversion routines. Hope this help!


Data Conversion
   These routines convert data from one form to another. Generally these routines execute faster than conversions you might write. Each routine that begins with a to prefix is implemented as a function and as a macro. See Choosing Between Functions and Macros for information about choosing an implementation.
