Default Count character value using Stored Procedure

HI all,
I want to write stored procedure that will work.
I will provide character string to the stored procedure and stored proc should written me the value of each character.
Like.... the character string is "shelly" - so if i want the value of 's' in provided string it should give me 19(the position of 's' in between A-Z)
Any Ideas...u have ...do share with me!

hi mandy,

following is the stored procedure code for your task and it really works,

here cval is the character you want to search and sval is the string
that you want to compare. just execute the procedure and pass
the above two parameters to get output.

create or replace procedure charval(cval in char,sval in varchar2)
pos number;
    if (instr(sval,cval) > 0) then
    if(pos>=65 and pos<=91) then
          if(pos>=97 and pos<=123) then
          end if;
    end if;
   end if;
   dbms_output.put_line('value of character is'||pos);

do write if you don't understand the logic behind the procedure
