Help manipulating my String

Hello EE,

I have a string like this:


What I need to do is each digit I need to increase by 1

so the string need to be at the end:


another example:

needed result:  "=SUM(B5+D6+H12)"

any idea ? (how to repert the digit then +1 on it etc..)

I would handle this by keeping the rows seperate:

int b=5;
int d=6;
int h=11;
String result;

result = print(b,d,h);


result = print(b,d,h);

string print(int b, int d, int h)
  return String.Format("=Sum(B{0}+D{1}+H{2}",b,d,h)

how could we do both at the same time?  do you think its possible via the same Delegate maybe?
