just a note: ord will also give you the "ordinal" value of any enumerated type.  This function is/can be very important.

Ok and heres some sample code..... As Rwilson rightly puts it you use ord

var
 c: char;
begin
   c:='a';
   messagedlg('The Ascii Value of this char is: '+inttostr(ord(c)),mtconfirmation,[mbyes,mbno],0);
end;
