This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Strange... the Encrypt half of the function seems identical to this even to having the Decrypt comments... Does that mean we only need one function to do both, encrypt and decrypt?

Yep, they've essentially the same function, except in the Decrypt version you subtract the key letter from the ciphertext, and in the Encrypt version you add the keyletter to the ciphertext.

It's
v = Char ( Code ( Left ( text ; 1 ) ) - Code (Middle (key ; i;1) ) );
versus
v = Char ( Code ( Left ( text ; 1 ) ) + Code (Middle (key ; i;1) ) );

But you're right, I didn't change it in the comment text - sloppy of me. I've fixed it now.
