    The task is designing a program that takes plain text, a shift and print the encrypted message on the screen. The program should also be able to convert a cipher text back to plain text when given the cipher and the text. This is in visual Basic and I am really stuck and have no idea... Any help would be appreciated

    Why don't you write the algorithm for this task first, so that you have a nice logical standpoint of the task at hand.

    Doing an algorithm flow chart should always be your first step. We can't write this out for you. I thought this was last years task though - I just got results for my Computing GCSE where I did the encryption task for A453.

    If you're really stuck, looking at rot13 on stack overflow seems to always get people unstuck.
