Sometimes it is helpful to include a picture so that we know exactly what you want.  Are you trying to make something like this?Meter with LettersMeter with Letters

Sorry, it can't be done.  

 

Of course, I'm kidding.  If this is what you mean by "Meter", the first thing you need to figure out is what values you want the letters to represent.  The above Meter is right from the Front Panel Numeric Palette, and has a default Scale of 0 to 10.  That's what I used.  You now need to enable "Text Labels" (its one of the last tabs on the Property setting, and check "Use text labels for scale markers".  I left the default "Sequential Values" checked, and just filled in A through K (A = 0, K = 10) and, as the British say, "Bob's your uncle!".
