I have another question which I'm hoping is very simple.

I have a variable counting down from 100. I would like it to print as a 3 digit number therefore adding 0's in front if below 100.

i.e. 99 = 099 and 9 = 009.

I have tried using the PRINT USING command but can't get it to work.

Any ideas?

I'm doing something like that with

this program, though it's using the Condensed number set to count down.

So what I did was setup an Array n%(0) to n%(2) with the values, so in your case it would be n%(0)=1 n%(1)=0 n%(2)=0 the main guts of the program is Lines 610 to 710 to count down the values. To put those values from an the array into an integer Line 620 puts it into an Integer called Result, 630 to 650 converts the numbers from the Integer array, into a String Array and to impose the Condensed Number set I've added 220 to get the condensed set character.

But having said all that, PRINT USING I think is the proper approach (the reason I did the above related to my Pascal game and incorporating a Condensed Number counting system into it), unfortunately it's an technique I'm not too familiar with But if it can be done, then it would be somewhat faster than the approach I've used. The approach I used was also the technique used for my Silly Number Guessing Game.
