Probably an easy question, but how do I reference the individual characters of a string?  For example in order to extract each character one after another I thought it would be something like this:

Dim MyString As String
Dim MyChar As String

MyString = "abcd"

For index = 0 to Len MyString
    MyChar = MyString[index]   'this syntax is incorrect
Next index


Thanks.
