You would have to use a source code expression to do that rather than an animator. There's an example of that out there, I just can't seem to find it right now. Perhaps a web search based on "animate predefined characters array" or similar will turn it up.

The Character Range option allows you to do this - select the Preserve Case & Digits option from the menu.

This should work. Provide a screen cap of your Timeline - allow us to see the 'inside' of your Text Layer.

I just realized my mistake. I needed yo set the range too. Thank you sir. One thing though. What if instead from A-E I’d have needed random letters instead, lets say AZJLM? Is there any way to do that?

Add a Wiggly Selector. Mess about with the Min and Max Amount properties. But if it's only 5 changes then you will have more control using the Source Text property to change your text characters. HTH
