' You can use this for anything but profit
FOR x = LEN(x$) TO 1 STEP -1
a$ = MID$(x$, LEN(x$) - x + 1, 1)
IF a$ <= "9" THEN
        a = VAL(a$)
        IF a$ = "F" THEN a = 15
        IF a$ = "E" THEN a = 14
        IF a$ = "D" THEN a = 13
        IF a$ = "C" THEN a = 12
        IF a$ = "B" THEN a = 11
        IF a$ = "A" THEN a = 10
tempvar = tempvar + (a * 16 ^ (x - 1))
PRINT tempvar

You can put this in a function then pull the decimal out of
the string, and increment the decimal, then call this
function to turn the decimal into hex (sorta)

Hope this helps,
