Script to find a character code (CHR

Find the ASCII character code for equivalent text. For example, ...CHR$(34)... is a double quote(").

Find the ASCII character code for equivalent text. For example, ...CHR$(34)... is a double quote(").

If you are like me, you have printed countless pages of ASCII character codes repeatedly only to loan them to someone or simply lose them in the clutter.

This agent has "opportunities for enhancement" as does any agent, but it's a quick and dirty solution to a problem that takes up more time than it should.

Create an agent, set it to manually from the Actions Menu, run once, and name it something like "get chr$.? Then paste the code below:

Sub Initialize
        character$ = Inputbox$("Type the character for which you need the CHR code...")
	For i = 1 To 1000
		If Chr$(i) = character$ Then
			Msgbox "chr$("&Cstr(i) & ") will create a "& character$
			Exit For
		End If
End Sub
