I am tryinh to send a number 123456 on a MSMQ. What goes onto the queue is 46 bytes as it is in XML.

Another application is also writing to the queue and it only sends 6 Bytes to represent the number.

I have tried putting the queue formatter into Binary but it still sends 30 Bytes and includes alot of other characters before the number.

Does anyone know how to do this. It is driving me crazy !!!!

If the other application is sending out six bytes, could it be Int32 with a 2byte for a character?
