"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

in .NET just Asc or AscW will do
Look at what Microsoft has to say about AscB of VB6 days

Note :  The AscB function of earlier versions of Visual Basic returns a code for a byte, rather than a character. It is used primarily for converting strings in double-byte character set (DBCS) applications. All Visual Basic .NET strings are in Unicode, and AscB is no longer supported.

Asc returns the code point, or character code, for the input character. This can be 0 through 255 for single-byte character set (SBCS) values and -32768 through 32767 for double-byte character set (DBCS) values.
