I have a global counter that is increased from 0 to 50 by a plus and a minus button.

I would like the incrementation to scale so fom 0 to 5 or 5 to 0 in steps of 1 and from 5 to 50 in steps of 5 or -5 if decreasing

my current code works but only in steps of 1 which is a lot of clicks

I tried a case with 0 to 4 with increments of 1
then 5 to 49 with increments of 5
but the counts go beyond 50 my upper limit so it all falls apart
Private Sub BtnVCCPlus_Click()
    Select Case vCCCount
     Case 0
      vCCCount = vCCCount + 1
    Case 1 To 49
     vCCCount = vCCCount + 1
     Case 50
 
 
     
     
     
     End Select
      LblVCCCount.Caption = vCCCount
End Sub
Private Sub BtnVCCMinus_Click()
     Select Case vCCCount
     
     Case 0
     
     Case 1 To 49
        vCCCount = vCCCount - 1
     Case 50
        vCCCount = vCCCount - 1
  
     
     
     
     
     End Select
      LblVCCCount.Caption = vCCCount
End Sub

I have almost got there the decrement works but the increment gets to 4 then jumps straight to 10
Private Sub BtnVCCPlus_Click()

     
     If vCCCount >= 0 And vCCCount <= 4 Then vCCCount = vCCCount + 1
      If vCCCount >= 5 And vCCCount <= 49 Then vCCCount = vCCCount + 5
    
     
     
     
     
     
      LblVCCCount.Caption = vCCCount
End Sub
Private Sub BtnVCCMinus_Click()

 If vCCCount >= 1 And vCCCount <= 5 Then vCCCount = vCCCount - 1
      If vCCCount >= 6 And vCCCount <= 49 Then vCCCount = vCCCount - 5
     If vCCCount = 50 Then vCCCount = vCCCount - 5
     
     
     
     

      LblVCCCount.Caption = vCCCount
End Sub

up...


Select Case vCCCount
     Case 0 to 4
      vCCCount = vCCCount + 1
    Case 5 To 45
     vCCCount = vCCCount + 5
     Case else  
    ' do nothing
         
     End Select

and down...


Select Case vCCCount
     
      Case 1 to 5
      vCCCount = vCCCount -1
    Case 10 To 50
     vCCCount = vCCCount - 5
     Case else  
    ' do nothing
 End Select
     
     
     
     
     End Select
