Here is a quick little function to remove extra spaces from within in a string, which might be of help when processing user inputs.

Public Function RemoveExtraSpaces(str As String) As String

  str = Trim(str)

  Dim L As Integer, i As Integer
  Dim S As String
  Dim Prev_char As String * 1

  S = ""

  L = Len(str)
  i = 1
    Prev_char = Mid(str, i, 1)
    i = i + 1

  S = S + Prev_char
    If Prev_char = " " Then
    Do While (i < L) And (Mid(str, i, 1) = " ")
      i = i + 1
    End If

  Loop Until i > L

  str = S
  RemoveExtraSpaces = S
End Function


'Create a form with a button and a text box
Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Text1 = RemoveExtraSpaces(Text1)
End Sub
