How to use ASC in Excel 2016 VBA custom function?

I want to use the Microsoft ASC function in a custom Excel 2016 function, but when I try in the following function ASCC.

Here is the example shown at https://www.techonthenet.com/excel/formulas/asc.php

Dim LResult As Integer
LResult = Asc ("W")

I tried it as

Function ASCC()
    Dim LResult As Integer
    LResult = Asc("W")
End Function

but I get 0 instead of 87.

Asc ("W")
Result: 87
LVL 1

You didn't return anything:

Function ASCC()
    Dim LResult As Integer
    LResult = Asc("W")
    ASCC = LResult
End Function
