You can also use this

If InStr(intRDigit, "1470") > 0 Then
    strtest = "A"
ElseIf InStr(intRDigit, "258") > 0 Then
    strtest = "B"
Else
    strtest = "C"
End If

Or you could use Select Case -

SELECT CASE IntRDigit
   Case 1,4,7,0
      strtest = "A"
   Case 2, 5, 8
      strtest = "B"
   Case Else
      strtest = "C"
End Select

One Line:

strtest = Choose(strtest + 1, "A", "A", "B", "C", "A", "B", "C", "A", "B")

@Dbmx

This is both shorter, and correct, as long as intRDigit is >= 0
Your Choose options don't cover more than 0-8.

strtest = Left(Mid("AABCABCAB", intRDigit + 1, 1) + "C", 1)

the actual strings are quite bit longer than strtest = "A".

"Your Choose options don't cover more than 0-8."
Either does your Accepted solution  - so what?

And your new solution uses two functions instead of 1 !

So then why wasn't there at least a split?  I posted the select case option...

Still one line ... covering any number > 8:

strtest = Nz(Choose(strtest + 1, "A", "A", "B", "C", "A", "B", "C", "A", "B"), "C")

>>So then why wasn't there at least a split?
originally I just tested them and gave out the points to the first correct answer.
afterwards I decided which one to use. sorry about that. If you really want I can see if I can't reopen to distribute the points.

Just a suggestion ... sometimes it's best to wait for a few posts, especially when it's clear there will be many possible solutions, some simpler than others :-)
