Last week at a customer, we were reported of a bug and checking it closely what I saw was that it is storing the value as a hex coded value instead. I then wrote code to check the situation as a work around. The thing I noticed was that the computer's CPU was Xeon. I wondered if that may be a reason that CreateBinary() is causing the value to be converted to hex.

I believe this is the explanation:

LOCAL cx,cw
cx=CHR(0x4a)+CHR(0x53)+CHR(0x55)+CHR(0x77)
cw=STRCONV(cx,15)
?CREATEBINARY(cx),CREATEBINARY(cw)


My respects
