    one possible suggestion if you want to eliminate all those if statements is to condense it and compare it to a string;
    Code:
    char alphabet[]={"abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEF!@#$"};
    int i=0;
    while(alphabet[i]!='\0')
    {
        if(letter2000==alphabet[i])
        {
            letter2004=i;
        }
        
        i++;
    }
    this would make it easier to add Capital letters or other symbols

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    C-Style strings are termintated with a NULL character '\0'. Basically the loop it just testing to see if it has hit the end of the string. You can think of it like this.
    If you have ever had to climb a rope most people tie a big knot at the end of it. That way they have someting to stop them from slding off the rope.
