How to extract each digit from a number in one cell?
I need to extract each digit from a number entered in one cell. I then need
to multiply each digit by another digit. The second part I can handle. It's how to parse that number into it's separate digits that is the challenge. I am used to redefine capabilities in other languages but can't find any easy equivalend in Excel.

This might do it. I won't be able to try it for about an hour so will let you
know then. Thanks!!

How to extract each digit from a number in one cell?
This worked great. I actually had to start from the right most position so
just reversed the counter and end values and added a step 1. I need to do this with the text entered by a user, calculate a check digit and display the result as well as use the check digit in building a bar code. I have not worked much with text boxes. I assume I could use that to gather the data but wouldn't I need to have a separate calculate button to actually do the extract? Otherwise, how would the application know when the complete number had been entered. Any thoughts, suggestions?
