Need a function that takes an alpha-numeric character (i.e. A or B or C or # or &) and returns the Chr() value

I need a simple function like this:

Public Function GetChrValue(SingleCharacter as string) as Long

             Dim Char as string, CharLong as Long

             Char = Left(SingleCharacter, 1)     ' For those people who don't understand the word "Single"

             CharLong = '[ HERE'S WHAT I NEED ]

             GetChrValue = CharLong

End Function

Sorry, I'm a bit confused...  You need the function you posted...?
You need the ASCII value of the character as a long??
CharLong = clng(ASC(Char))

Leew, read the function... see where it says [ HERE'S WHAT I NEED ]? That's what I needed.

I know it was simple, but I just had a brain fart and couldn't remember how to do it -- like forgetting a girls name -- haha.
