Returns the ANSI character code corresponding to the first letter in a string.

The string argument is any valid string expression. If the string contains no characters, a run-time error occurs.


Note  The AscB function is used with byte data contained in a string. Instead of returning the character code for the first character, AscB returns the first byte. AscW is provided for 32-bit platforms that use Unicode characters. It returns the Unicode (wide) character code, thereby avoiding the conversion from Unicode to ANSI.
