Ok this is what i need, when you type your name into a textbox and click a button the code will assign a picture to each letter in the string.

i am trying a for next loop, i have the string lenght by using Len, but how do i get it to search for each character and output the coressponding picture.

Cheers

Dim curChar as String

Public Sub Command1_Click()
  for i = 1 to Len(Text1.Text)
     curChar = Mid(Text1.Text, i, 1)

     '' curChar will now contain the current character in the string
     if curChar = "A" Then
        PictureBox1.Picture = LoadPicture("<path to image for letter A>")
     elseif
        etc... '' you could also use a SELECT CASE clause if you don't want if then else
     end if
  next

End Sub
