Is there a way to request "Word Wrap" in the Access Visual Basic Editor?

I am using the VB Editor and am continually having to use line continuations so I can see all my code.  If there was a simple (word wrap) option, this would be avoidable.

Is there not and if not, why not?  Is there an add-on I can use to get it or a better VB Editor I can use with Access?

I don't believe there is.  When in VB or Access VBA, you will need to use the line continuations.

Probably a matter of it needs to know when the next line is a continuation, or another line of code.

Hi MitchellVII,

As tward has mentioned, there is no word wrap option. There are some Add-Ons you can use though. My favourite is MZTools - http://www.mztools.com/v3/features.aspx

Wayne

Note, you will still NOT get a word wrap option, but MZTools allows you to Split / Combine Lines (add or remove the line continuation characters)

Thanks Tubbs,

I'll look into the MZTools things.

You know, in Access 2007 you would think M$ would have spent more time improving things we actually use everyday like the VBA Editor instead of those idiotic Ribbons and the even more idiotic Navigator Pane.

For instance, in M$ Visual Studio, there IS a wordwrap option, but in Access VBA there ISN'T?  So they put it in the flagship product (must think it's a good idea) and leave it out of the Access product?  Also, how about having a VERY limited number of "undo's" available in the VBA Editor?  Is THAT somehow a benefit to anyone?

Who the heck is the retarded monkey making product development decisions over there?

Mitchell, remember that VBA is basically an iteration of VB6.  Since VB6 is on the way out
right now in favor of VB.net, I think it's safe to say that MS will not be making any substantial
investments in the VBIDE interface.

Can I somehow use a different VBA Editor (that is more fully featured) that Access will go to as the default?

matthews,

That and the fact that M$ loves to ignore what needs fixing and break what works.  Office 2007 is a perfect example of this philosophy.  Take Word 2007.  That program is worse in almost every conceivable way than Word 2003 was.  And don't get me started about Outlook 2007 - they don't even use their own IE rendering engine for HTML!
