Function Any2Dec(ByVal otherBaseNumber As String, ByVal base As Integer) As Long
    Dim digits As String
    Dim digitValue As Long

    ' check base
    If base < 2 Or base > 36 Then
        Throw New ArgumentException("Base must be in range 2-36")
    End If

    ' get the list of valid digits
    digits = "0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ".Substring(0, base)

    ' convert to decimal
    Dim ch As Char
    For Each ch In otherBaseNumber.ToUpper()
        ' get the digit's value
        digitValue = digits.IndexOf(ch)
        ' error if invalid digit
        If digitValue < 0 Then
            Throw New ArgumentException("Invalid character")
        End If
