Choose one pair of letters from column A, one from column B, etc. and put them together:

bc  ae  ae  ad  as
cb  bf  bf  bg  bp
de  cg  cg  cf  cq
ed  ea  ea  da  dv
fg  fb  fb  fc  ew
gf  gc  gc  gb  ft
hi  hl  hl  hm  gu
ih  im  im  il  hz
jk  jn  jn  jo  jx
kj  ko  ko  kn  ky
lm  lh  lh  li  pb
ml  mi  mi  mh  qc
no  nj  nj  nk  sa
on  ok  ok  oj  tf
pq  pt  pt  pu  ug
qp  qu  qu  qt  vd
rs  rv  rv  rw  we
sr  sw  sw  sv  xj
tu  tp  tp  tq  yk
ut  uq  uq  up  zh
vw  vr  vr  vs
wv  ws  ws  wr
xy
yx

The result will decode to "adder".

CLS
w$ = "adder"
alp$ = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
FOR p = 1 TO LEN(w$)
 ct = 0
 l$ = MID$(w$, p, 1)
 a = ASC(l$)
 FOR i = 1 TO 26
  p1$ = MID$(alp$, i, 1)
  b = a XOR i
  c$ = CHR$(b)
  IF INSTR(alp$, c$) THEN
    ct = ct + 1
    LOCATE ct, p * 4
    PRINT p1$; c$;
  END IF
 NEXT
NEXT

LOCATE 30, 1
