First of all, apologies for not replying earlier !
WOW, I didn't think that a few lines of code could provoke so much discussion !!!

The technique that I am trying to employ is between a PC and an Arduino (via Com port - actually USB). I used it a few years ago to transfer floating point numbers, but in the OPPOSITE direction and it worked perfectly.

Anyway, thank you all for your comments - I am amazed that the "error" is actually in the assignment as pointed out by Jochen. In this particular application, the floating point numbers will be quite small, so I think that I'll have to go for the 4 byte transfer method to maintain accuracy - but I'll be doing a lot of testing !! Thank you all once again !
Doug
