        Dim ss
        Randomize()
        Do While Len(gnrnum) < LenPass
            ss = 48 + Int(Rnd() * 59)
            If ss <= 57 And ss >= 48 Then gnrnum = gnrnum & Chr(ss)
            If ss <= 90 And ss >= 65 Then gnrnum = gnrnum & Chr(ss)
        Loop
        GeneratePass= gnrnum
    End Function


Call it Like
myPassword = GeneratePass(5) 'where 5 is the length of the password

or if you want to avoid confusion on "0" and "O", etc, try like below:

Public Function GetRandomKey(byval digits As Integer) As String
    Dim keyStr As String, output As String, s As Integer
    keyStr = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnpqrstuvwsyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZ"
    Randomize
   
    output = ""
    Do While Len(output) < digits
        s = Int(Rnd * Len(keyStr)) + 1
        output = output & Mid$(keyStr, s, 1)
    Loop
   
    GetRandomKey = output
End Function

myPassword = GetRandomKey(6)
