Arend,

-no need to increment $
-the parentheses surrounding the multiplication are superflous as the priority rule of multiplication before addition is valid here too
-AND $y<91 can also be ommitted

91:
 Code:
Function a($)
  Dim $x, $y
  For $x = 0 to Len($)
    $y = Asc(SubStr($,$x))
    If $y>64 $a=$a+($x*($y-64))
EndFunction

90:
 Code:
Function a($b)
  Dim $, $y
  For $ = 0 to Len($b)
    $y = Asc(SubStr($b,$))
    If $y>64 $a=$a+($*($y-64))
EndFunction

Presumably final code, basically not mine anymore but Witto's and Jochen's code.

Now you have twice 64 in your code
substract it directly here
$y = Asc(SubStr($b,$))-64
Now evaluate for > 0
If $y>0 $a=$a+($*$y)

that makes 87:

Function a($b)
  Dim $, $y
  For $ = 0 to Len($b)
    $y = Asc(SubStr($b,$))-64
    If $y>0 $a=$a+($*$y)
EndFunction

I don't see why you still insist on parenthesing your multiplications ;\)

Don't think so. The solutions are very resembling.
I think it is a good exercise to see how we think and to get to know the little tricks that can golf the score

True, not needed anymore
85:
 Code:
Function a($b)
  Dim $, $y
  For $=0 to Len($b)
    $y=Asc(SubStr($b,$))-64
    If $y>0 $a=$a+$*$y
EndFunction


Witto: You are right, this was my first KixGolf participation \:\)

My slightly different approach. More shots (86), but I get to see more of the unusual scenery ;\)

 Code:
Function a($)
	Dim $i,$s
	While $
		$i=$i+1
		$s=Asc($)-64
		$=SubStr($,2)
		$a=$a+$i*$s*($s>)
EndFunction

Just reviewed some code and got down to 90

Is it really ok to not close If's and other loops?

Any way, my code is:
 Code:
Function a($)
dim  $q, $w
for $q = 1 to len($)
	$w=asc(substr($,$q,1))-64
	if $w>0 $a=$a+($w*$q)
endfunction

that looks like the code Jochen posted.
$a+$w*$q is the same as $a+($w*$q)
Maybe you can replace $q or $q by $.

After a clarification,

Is
 Code:
function a($b)

legal?

I didn't think you could edit the base code. So, I'm at 86, or 85 if I cheat.

Very Nice Richard,

here is a 85 based on yours ;\)

 Code:
Function a($)
	Dim $i,$s
	While $
		$i=$i+1
		$s=Asc($)-64
		$=Right($,~)
		$a=$a+$i*$s*($s>)
EndFunction
