I don't believe that there is on, since with proportional fonts, it would be rather redundant.
You could use a couple of spaces for the n, and three or four for the m space, but it wouldn't be precise, and would depend on the font and the letter case.

If you need character to align vertically, there are other ways of achieving it, including tabs and fixed-width fonts such as Courier New.

Okay, thanks Graham. No I wanted to achieve that gap without using spaces, just separating telephone and fax that appear on the one line. I'll just use two spaces. I still use them often via Insert > Symbol and hoped to do via code.

Sorry Fi,

If you can find the symbol that way, then I was wrong. I have only ever been able to find a normal space and a non-break space, but I was looking in the wrong place.

Try this:


Sub InsertSpaces(rng As Range)
    rng.InsertAfter ChrW(8195) 'm space
    rng.InsertAfter ChrW(8194) 'n space
End Sub

Open in new window
