I have a text sting in column A which includes spaces. I want to remove the spaces and import the now reduced text string into column B.

How would I do that using VBA?

I don't want to use =SUBSTITUTE(A1," ","") as I wish to change the text string in column A and when I change the text sting the =SUBSTITUTE(A1," ","") is then required to be re-entered in column B every time.

I hope somebody understands what I'm saying here!
Many thanks.

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Try

Code:
Sub test()
Dim LR As Long, i As Long
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
For i = 1 To LR
    With Range("A" & i)
        .Offset(, 1).Value = Replace(.Value, " ", "")
    End With
Next i
End Sub
