Hi arzoo, you can accept comments as answers in your other open questions, or ask for more clarification, but you got some lengthy answers without grading them.....that's a shame since it turns some real good people off from helping you or helping out here altogether....

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 =33 to 255
   debug.print "the character "; Chr(i); "is repeated " ;   AllAscii(I),

Sorry arzoo
I didn't test it before Posting
Here is a working code
note debug.print can be changed to any output method U need

dim AllAscii(256)

for I = 1 to len(Text1.text)
  AllAscii(asc(mid(text1 , I)))=    AllAscii(asc(mid(text1 , I)))+1


'   then to get that array
for i =33 to 255
  debug.print "the character "; Chr(i); "is repeated " ;   AllAscii(I),

Sorry again
Hope that helps
