Code

Private Sub Command1_Click()
thetext = Text1.Text
incremnttxt = findchr(thetext)
Text2.Text = incremnttxt
End Sub
Function findchr(ByVal thetext As String)
Dim strlen As Integer

ReDim A1(strlen)
For L = 1 To UBound(A1)  ' parse individual characters
A1(L) = Mid(thetext, L, 1)
Next L

For nxtchar = 1 To UBound(A1)  ' cyle through characters increment ascii value
valchar = (UBound(A1)) - (nxtchar - 1)
If Asc(A1(valchar)) >= 65 And Asc(A1(valchar)) <= 90 Or _
