Edit value using edit code 'X'

Converting numbers to characters.

There are times when programmers need to convert numbers to characters. I use %EditC built in function using edit...

code 'X'.

Example:

1. Time 34233 (say 3.42.33 am); TextFd = %EditC(Time:'X') Returns '034233' when TextFd is 6A.

2. Number 123; TextFd = %EditC(Number:'X') Returns '000123'

It's just a line of code!
