THe routine below converts a string value of w to the ASCII equivalent of Dec 119, if i had a non printable character how could i convert it to a Dec?

For example the decimal value of 10
Public checksumchar As String = "w"
    Public Associatedchecksum(0) As String
 
 Private Sub Data_CheckSum()
        Dim myChars() As Char
        myChars = checksumchar.ToCharArray()
        Associatedchecksum(0) = AscW(myChars(0))
    End Sub

Yes I believe that works in most cases.  I know the line feed (nl) character does or at least it did for me.
Public checksumchar As String = vbLf
    Public Associatedchecksum(0) As String
 
 Private Sub Data_CheckSum()
        Dim myChars() As Char
        myChars = checksumchar.ToCharArray()
        Associatedchecksum(0) = AscW(myChars(0))
    End Sub

Here is an extended character that works, get 8226.  Note AscW works for unicode character set from 0 to  65535.

    Public Associatedchecksum(0) As String
 
 Private Sub Data_CheckSum()
        Dim myChars() As Char
        myChars = checksumchar.ToCharArray()
        Associatedchecksum(0) = AscW(myChars(0))
    End Sub
