Hello (Dunno if this is the right forum)

But basically, I've been given some text to decrypt. I've got to do it using frequency analysis. Here's what I've done:

1. Got a frequency analysis of the text: Showing how many times a letter appears.
2. Got a frequency analysis of the alphabet.
3. Compared the values (e.g. if A = 10 then replace it with the letter of the alphabet that has the highest frequency)

But it doesn't seem to be working, just prints out like:

CPLBP GRPVP CUUCCPRG RRPCLGLXURRCV YCV C BRGDCP LB PBRCPRGLX URCGLCRCL RRGPRG, GRLDGR RGV RLUCPVVRLRRVGRC PVPCDGRLR BLCPCCP C BPCX CLPCC RCPC LB RGV RCGDCP.

Anyone know where I'm going wrong? It's text frequency as well.

Thanks :)

Huh?? The English alphabet does not have a frequency other than 1, e.g. ABCD...
