Does anybody know a piece of code I can use to delete all the blank space within a string. for example say mystring = "hello how are you" I would want to change the value of mystring to = "hellohowareyou".

Thanks in advance

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Why not just use Replace (under the Edit menu), and replace all spaces " " with nothing?

Or if you want to do this from VBA then:
Code:
MyText = "Hi How Are You"
NewText = Application.WorksheetFunction.Substitute(MyText, " ", "")
