Hi Just use the NUMBER function, it converts numeric variable to string (see description below). Hanna

Conversion Functions NUMBER(arg,format) Convert the argument into a number using the specified format. The argument is string, the format is a numeric format, and the result is nu-meric. The string is essentially reread using the format and returned as a number. For example, NUMBER (XALPHA,F3.1) converts all values for XALPHA to numbers using the F3.1 format. The function returns the system-missing value if the conversion is invalid. STRING(arg,format) Converts the argument into a string using the specified format. The ar-gument is numeric, the format is a numeric format, and the result is a string. The number is converted from internal representation according to the format and then stored as a string. For example, STRING (INCOME, DOLLAR8) converts the numeric values for INCOME to the dollar format and returns it as a string value. If the result is shorter than the string vari-able that receives the values, it is right-justified. If the result is longer, it is right-trimmed.
