Depends on the string.  The simplest approach is to use Integer.Parse:

    val = Integer.Parse(str)

where val is the integer variable and str is the string variable.

Or you could use the old school VB 6 approach of:

val = CInt(str)

but either way ... I would do this in a Try Catch block and add a catch:

 Catch ex as InvalidCastException

This way you'll know an error occurred trying to parse the string in case it's not a valid integer and you can provide specific feedback to the user, if this is where it's coming from.

Try this

on error goto badstring

dim myInt as integer
dim myStr as string
myStr= "you string"
myint = asc(myStr)

msgbox(myint)

badstring:
msgbox("Invalid Characters")
exit sub
