(*make ascii list of alphabet*)
CodeList=Range[97, 122];

(*calculate all 3-letter combinations in ASCII form (17576 in total)*)
CodeList3=Tuples[CodeList, 3];

(*turn 3-ASCII codes into 3-letter strings*)
LetterList=Thread[FromCharacterCode[CodeList3]];

(*find the location of "bzz"*)
ibzz=Flatten[Position[LetterList, "bzz"]][[1]];

(*print elements "aaa" thru "bzz" -- that's 1352 elements*)
TableForm[Table[LetterList[[i]], {i, 1, ibzz}]]
