Default Chapter 3 exercise 6

In the book for chapter 3 exercises the author asks:
"Write a CLR console program that defines a string (as type String^) and then analyzes the characters in the string to discover the number of uppercase letters, the number of lowercase letters, the number of non-alphabetic characters, and the total number of characters in the string."
I noticed that the downloaded code solution is finding "vowels and consonants"
I have written code to solve the exercise in the book.
code
// Solu3_6.cpp : main project file.

#include "stdafx.h"

using namespace System;

int main(array<System::String ^> ^args)
{
int caps = 0;
int small = 0;
int nalpha = 0;
int totalchar = 0;

String^ string = L"In 1978, Lasse Nielsen\'s film \"Du er ikke alene\" was released.";

for each(wchar_t ch in string)
{
++totalchar;
if(Char::IsLetter(ch))
{
if(Char::IsUpper(ch))
++caps;
else
++small;

}

if(Char::IsDigit(ch))
++nalpha;
if(Char::IsPunctuation(ch))
++nalpha;

}
Console::WriteLine(string);

Console::WriteLine(L"\nThe total of capitals is {0} and small letters is {1}.", caps, small);

Console::WriteLine(L"The total non-alphabetic is {0} and total characters is {1}.",nalpha, totalchar);
return 0;
}
