I'm suppose to output the letter in our alphabet that falls in that order number if it was greater than 0. I have part of it but there's always a bug in the program if a digit was two digits. Can anybody fix it?

code:

  put "Please enter a word " ..
get word
 for x : 1 .. length (word)
if strintok (word (x)) and strint (word (x)) not= 0 then
                put chr (strint (word (x)) + 96)
            else
                put "Sorry. Please try again. "
                exit
            end if
end for

What do you want? post the whole program or something, Im not sure if your trying to add 96 to the ASCII value, if that you need to use ord.

code:
var num : int
put "Please enter a number " ..
get num
put chr (num + 96)

I'm confused though, the program you posted indicates you want to input a word and output it in numbers. the question however asks to input a number and output a word. which do you want?? the above is an answer to the question

code:
var word : string
put "Please enter a word : " ..
get word
for i : 1 .. length (word)
    put ord (word (i)) - 96, "  " ..
end for



there's the code for the other way.

NOTE: that code doesn't work for capital letters.. you can code that part yourself.
