# Data Conversion

 P: n/a I've been brute forcing a conversion of binary data in a byte array into ASCII encrypted hex (2 chars = 1 byte). Is there a formatting scheme that will allow me to do this? Here's a snipet of the code I've been using: For Count = 0 To myBuffer.Ubound(0) If Len(Hex(myBuffer(Count))) < 2 Then ByteValue = "0" & Hex(myBuffer(Count)) Else ByteValue = Hex(ReadBuffer(Count)) End If DisplayString.Append(ByteValue) Next Count Nov 20 '05 #1

 P: n/a Hi Brad, Thanks for posting in the community. First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue. From your description, I understand that you want to convert a byte array into a string, where each byte will be convert into two chars. Have I fully understood you? If there is anything I misunderstood, please feel free to let me know. I agree with Armin's suggestion. Also what do you mean by the "Formatting scheme", if you have any concern on this issue ,please post here.
