Add Spaces to a String
A common way to add spaces to a string with VBA is to use blank spaces between quotation marks. The following example adds ten spaces between the word “Hello” and “World”:
Sub AddSpaces() Dim MyString As String MyString = "Hello" & " " & "World" MsgBox MyString End Sub
VBA Space Function
A more intuitive way to add spaces to a string is to use the Space() function. The following does the same as the previous code, however it uses the Space() function:
Sub AddSpaces() Dim MyString As String MyString = "Hello" & Space(10) & "World" MsgBox MyString End Sub
Sidenote: This works in VBA, however it doesn’t work in a spreadsheet formula. Instead use the REPT Function to repeat a character, such as a space.
