Tanks for the reply's on this matter
the thing is what i wand to do is more complicated
I am reading 12 bit of data from an potentiometer when it is in the
it should give something like 0x0800  "hex"
when i turn left it decreases and when i turn right it increases
The maximum increment should be from 0x80 to 0xEF  and the maximum
decrement must not cross 0x00  from0x80 down to 0x00within one reading
if so i have to increment or decrement
with these maximums or less until i reach the last readout.

I hope i am more clear on what i want to do

I can get the data msb first in the registers datahi and datalo but
the LTC1286 allows also to read LSB first

Example   first readout  could be  x0800  the next  0x0880
the differents is 80 positive is bigger than 0x7F so i add 0x7Fto
previous readout
and compare again with the last readout witch can have changed in this
i assume not so 0x880 sub 0x87F is 0x01 witch is less than 0x7F and
i add 0x01 to the first readout and the process stops  until a new
appears  to be differend .

I don't understand what is the meaning msb stored at lower adress at the

moment i am
trying simulating this in MacPic

As i already  sad    thanks  for all the reply's on this matter
