Test if a Character in a String is a Letter


There is a simple way to test if a character in a string is a letter. Just by using the UCase() And LCase() functions.
 
    Public Function IsLetter(Char As String) 
As Boolean
    Dim sTemp As String
        sTemp = Left$(Char, 1)
        IsLetter = (StrComp(UCase(sTemp), LCase(sTemp), 
vbBinaryCompare) <> 0)
    End Function

Note: I use the StrComp function, to make it work independent of Option Compare.
