dim AllAscii(256)

for I = 1 to len(Text1.text)
    AllAscii(asc(mid(AllAscii(I))))=    AllAscii(asc(mid(AllAscii(I))))+1


'   then to get that array
for i =1 to 255
    ?     AllAscii(I),

along the same line

Function AscVal(strInput As String)
Dim RetVal As String, I as long

For I = 1 To Len(strInput)
    RetVal = RetVal & Asc(Mid(strInput, I, 1))
Next I

AscVal = RetVal
End Function

in your code you can use

lngTextValue = AscVal(Textbox1.Text)

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Dim cnt As Integer
Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To Len(Text1.Text)
    cnt = cnt + Asc(Mid(Text1.Text, i, 1))

MsgBox cnt

End Sub
