Question: converting a simple real number of the form 0.0141 to a string and getting ".141e-1"

I use the convert(real_number, string) Maple 18 function and get the following :

tmp:=convert(0.0141,string); # I get ".141e-1"  What I really want is : "0.0141"

Is there any other way to convert a real number and leave it in its original form ?
