Hello everyone

I have searched for a way to encrypt the string to SHA512 With SALTED String

I found a code for JAVA but not for VBA. Can you help me converting this JAVA script to VBA?

package javaTests;

import java.security.*;

public class EncryptTest {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws NoSuchAlgorithmException {
		System.out.println(getSHA512("123", "AAZZ"));

	public static String getSHA512(String toHash, String salt) {
		for (int i = 0; i < 100000; i++) {
			toHash = SHA512once(toHash + salt);
		return SHA512once(toHash);

	private static String SHA512once(String toHash) {

		MessageDigest md;
		String message = toHash;
		try {
			md = MessageDigest.getInstance("SHA-512");

			byte[] mb = md.digest();
			String out = "";
			for (int i = 0; i < mb.length; i++) {
				byte temp = mb[i];
				String s = Integer.toHexString(new Byte(temp));
				while (s.length() < 2) {
					s = "0" + s;
				s = s.substring(s.length() - 2);
				out += s;
			return (out);

		} catch (NoSuchAlgorithmException e) {
			System.out.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());
		return "Error";

	public static String salt(String toSalt, String salt) {
		return "";

Thanks a lot. I already got an answer but if you looked at comments, you will find that I have said the output is different not the same as in Java.
