sql server rotate through word

I had this question after viewing sql server query.

The above id works perfectly and is at sentence level.

what I would like now to do is rotate just through a word alone and get its sequence.

I have query that gives this:
ClientCode      word
54553002      OCEAN
54553002      RACE
54553002      T6
54553002      XC90

for each word I would like to grab the sequence of chars ascii so ocean has a column with
O=79
C=67
E=69
A=65
N=78

79,67, 69, 65, 78

the following gets the ascii code already.
USE [Dictionary]
GO
/****** Object:  UserDefinedFunction [dbo].[func_ASCIIEncodeString]    Script Date: 15/09/2016 16:44:44 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO

--Create the function
ALTER FUNCTION [dbo].[func_ASCIIEncodeString] (@inputString VARCHAR(15))
    RETURNS INT
AS
BEGIN
    -- Create the variables for the current character string position
    DECLARE @position INT = 1;  
    DECLARE @ASCIIEncodedValue INT = 0;

    -- Initialize the variables.  
    SET @position = 1;
    WHILE @position <= DATALENGTH(@inputString)  
       BEGIN  
          --Debug Point
          --SELECT ASCII(SUBSTRING(@inputString, @position, 1)) AS ASCIIValue,  
             --    CHAR(ASCII(SUBSTRING(@inputString, @position, 1))) AS CharacterValue

          --Add the ASCII value of the currently read character into the return variable
          SELECT @ASCIIEncodedValue += ASCII(SUBSTRING(@inputString, @position, 1));
          SET @position = @position + 1;
       END

    --Finally return to caller
    RETURN @ASCIIEncodedValue;
END

First create this function:
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[fnTally]()
RETURNS TABLE 
AS
/*******************************************************************************\
Function	: fnTally

Purpose		: returns a set with numbers from 1 to 10,000 
			  to be used in parsing and sequential data generation whithout loop
			  
Parameters	: no parameters

Invoke		:
	
		select * from [dbo].[fnTally]()
		select N from [dbo].[fnTally]()
		select substring('abcdef',N,1) as chr from [dbo].[fnTally]() where N<len('abcdef') -- parsing a string
		select dateadd(dd, N, '2007-01-01') as dte from [dbo].[fnTally]() --gets dates for about 30 years

\*******************************************************************************/
RETURN
	WITH 
	E1(N) AS 
	( --10E+1 or 10 rows
		 SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL
		 SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL
		 SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1 UNION ALL SELECT 1
	),                         
   E2(N) AS 
   ( --10E+2 or 100 rows	
		SELECT 1 FROM E1 a, E1 b
	),
   E4(N) AS 
   ( --10E+4 or 10,000 rows max
		SELECT 1 FROM E2 a, E2 b
	)
			 SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY (SELECT NULL)) as N FROM E4
	;

GO

And then use it like this:
declare
	@string varchar(1000)='what I would like now to do is rotate just through a word alone and get its sequence'

select 
	(
		select 
			cast(ascii(substring(@string,N,1)) as varchar(5))+','
		from 
			[zb_dba_maint].[dbo].[fnTally]() nr
		where
			nr.N<=len(@string) 
		FOR XML PATH('')
	) as ascii_seq

-- result:
ascii_seq
