    Write the steps down on a piece of paper, breaking down each process along the way. Test on paper, and when it works, start coding it!

    Create a array of vowels

    If a loop count the number of spaces
    In another nested loop count the number of each of the entries in your array

    Check the length of the text then subtract the number of spaces and the number of vowels to get the number of consonants

    See .IndexOf method of the string class
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.

    Mid and Len are still VB6 functions. I'd suggest having a look here at some of the String ( as Dm pointed out ) methods :
