    Question Converting Dec word to Hex string

    I have a word var that represents a 4 or5 digit decimal number... (00000 or 01234 example)
    I need to convert the var word to a string of 4 or 5 bytes that repsent the digits of the number.... example Dec Word var = 12345... result would be byte(0) = $35, Byte(1) = $ 34, Byte(2) = $33, Byte(3) = $ 32, Byte(4) = $31.
    I cannot pass through a serial port to do it so I have to do it another way.
    I have seen this before but cannot locate in a search.

    Code:
    digits var byte[5]
    x var byte
    y var word
    y = 12345
    
    for x = 0 to 4
    	digits[x]= (y dig x) +$30 ' find digit & convert to ASCII
    next x
    end
    ' digits[0]=$35
    ' digits[1]=$34
    ' digits[2]=$33
    ' digits[3]=$32
    ' digits[4]=$31
