I noticed that I made a mistake on my original submission... Completely ignored the uppercase/lowercase difference. 

 

Here is a streamlined and revised version.

I approached Part II.  I presumed that you wanted a macro solution and instead approached this with generate rows.

This was a fun one to keep refining and building on!

Started with an iterative macro to run through the 25 possibilities and allow the user to manually select the correct answer. Then added another standard macro layer to give the option of providing the shift value if you have it, or running all options if you don't. And the macro icon was an easy choice 🙂 

Option 1:

Process to convert the characters for each shift value:

I am uploading after a trial by referring the other answer.

 

This is good example of using Macro.

 

Will keep in mind for my future workflow 🙂

Here's my solution. I used a batch macro to work through the 26 potential shift keys.
