MyInteger = Asc("A")
MyInteger = Asc("Apple")

These both produce the same result - 65 - 'cause Asc function takes the charater in a string and returns it's Ascii-value.

Check the help files also for AscB and AscW functions to see if they are supported and if you sometimes ned to use them.

Does that mean that Int will convert an integer value back to Ascii?

I am not quite sure what you mean by your comment.

Asc function takes a character and returns it's ascii value.

Chr function takes an ascii code (0 - 255) and returns corresponding character.

Asc("A") -> 65
Chr(65) -> A
