Subject:   numeric to char conversions

I have a numeric variable that I want to convert to char. I've tried the following:

charx = put(x, $char5.); charx = put(x, char5.);

In both cases I get an error message saying that CHAR is not a format. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for your help.
