Will this work?

Dim temp1, temp2, temp4

x = 0
temp1 = ""
While Not IsNumeric(Right(temp1, 1))
    x = x + 1
    temp1 = Mid(txtName.ControlSource, 1, x)

x = x - 1
temp1 = Left(temp1, x)

temp2 = Val(Mid(txtName.ControlSource, x + 1)) + 1
temp4 = temp1 & temp2 'Concatenation of temp1 and temp2 to create new cell refernce to move to
txtName.ControlSource = temp4

It works to go to the next cell reference but what would I have to do in order to make it go to previous cells ? Then you got yourself the points !!

Try to  subtract  instead of add  to temp2

temp2 = Val(Mid(txtName.ControlSource, x + 1)) - 1
