Take cell out of formula

I am using a formula that takes a number and writes it in letters according to what I have assigned each digit. I now want a button that will reverse it and put the letters back into the original number. Any idea the formula for another button to put it back in numbers? The third field name will be txtOutput2

The formula I am using to write in letters is as follows:

Dim arrayname
Dim i As Long
Dim bNumeric As Boolean
arrayname = Array("q", "w", "e", "r", "t", "y", "u", "i", "p", "a")

bNumeric = True
Me.txtOutput = Null
For i = 1 To Len(Me.txtInput)
    If IsNumeric(Mid(Me.txtInput, i, 1)) Then
    Else
        bNumeric = False
        i = Len(Me.txtInput)
    End If
Next
   

If bNumeric Then
    Me.txtOutput = ""
    For i = 1 To Len(Me.txtInput)
        Me.txtOutput = Me.txtOutput + arrayname(CInt(Mid(Me.txtInput, i, 1)))
    Next
Else
    MsgBox "Non-numeric symbols entered: " & Me.txtInput, vbOKOnly
End If

Me.fldDateUpdated = Now()

You can use this function:
Function conv_txt2num(in_str As String) As String
Dim arrayname
Dim i As Long, j As Long, out_str As String, c As String
Dim bNumeric As Boolean
arrayname = Array("q", "w", "e", "r", "t", "y", "u", "i", "p", "a")
out_str = ""
For i = 1 To Len(in_str)
    c = Mid(in_str, i, 1)
    For j = 0 To UBound(arrayname)
        If c = arrayname(j) Then
            out_str = out_str & j
            Exit For
        End If
    Next j
Next i
conv_txt2num = out_str
End Function

Open in new window

Call it like:
Me.txtOutput2 =  conv_txt2num(Me.txtInput)

At the risk of sounding real stupid... is that something I can copy and past into an "OnClick" event? That is what I am looking for.

You can paste function to module for use anywhere (in queries, on forms, etc). In "OnClick" event you can call function like in sample above:
Me.txtOutput2 =  conv_txt2num(Me.txtOutput)
ConvertNum.accdb

Ok... what field names do I change?

My field names are: The letters I start with is txtOutput and the final numbers are txtOutput2.

I figued out which to change... but when I click the button, nothing happens. It isn't putting the result in the field. The code I am using is:

Private Sub Command43_Click()

Dim arrayname
Dim i As Long, j As Long, out_str As String, c As String
Dim bNumeric As Boolean
arrayname = Array("q", "w", "e", "r", "t", "y", "u", "i", "p", "a")
out_str = ""
For i = 1 To Len(in_str)
    c = Mid(in_str, i, 1)
    For j = 0 To UBound(arrayname)
        If c = arrayname(j) Then
            out_str = out_str & j
            Exit For
        End If
    Next j
Next i
conv_txtOutput2 = out_str

End Sub

I prefer to use separate functions (look at Module1), because you can reuse in other cases. Copy Module1 to new DB and you can call this function from any form.
form.accdb
