Displaying ASCII String data from Siemens S7 PLC

Hi,

I have some string data internal to my Siemens S7 PLC that I want to display. When I use the string tag type all I get is the number value of the data block.

Is there a way to easily display as ASCII?
Also how to display the whole string, my string data is assigned 6 bytes in my PLC, but the maximum VTSCADA allows is 4 bytes, one double word?

For example my string is located at
DB24.DB12.0
for 6 bytes + 2 bytes of string data. The characters start at DB14.0

I want to display the exact ASCII string from DB14.0 onwards

Thanks
