    or check the API if theres any method that converts a number into a String/word

    Integer.toString() converts an int to a string....after which you can stitch the strings together.

    So, if I want to do the opposite, does String.toInteger () work?

    Regards,

    Integer.parseInt() is what you are looking for. If you are unsure that the String is an integer, be sure to validate it before, or catch any NumberFormatExceptions that could be thrown

    lol, no. I need to get the value of a string. In Olde BASIC (Sinclair, Commodore etc...) you would use something like VAL or VAL$. Ie, LET A=VAL "100" or LET B=VAL B$ would give you 100 or the literal value of B$ as long as B$ only contains numbers and not letters or other characters.
