Function that returns the byte code which represents a specific character. 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.
For Western languages 1 byte = 1 character but many Eastern languages use double-byte/Unicode characters.

AscW is provided for platforms that use Unicode characters. It returns the Unicode (wide) character code, thereby avoiding the conversion from Unicode to ANSI.

      Ascb (string)

Ascb ("A") will return 65


Dim intDemo

intDemo = AscB ("A")
MsgBox intDemo
> 65

intDemo = AscB ("ABC")
MsgBox intDemo
> 65
