First you need to find out the ASCII value of that character.

             Int value = Asc("your input")
             value = value + 1

And then convert ASCII integer value back to character as below.

              Char newValue = Chr(value)

Here newValue is next letter of given alphabet.

char letter = 'c';

if (letter == 'z')
    nextChar = 'a';
else if (letter == 'Z')
    nextChar = 'A';

else
    nextChar = (char)(((int)letter) + 1);
