Hello all

I normally use this code to TRIM a textbox
Text1.text = TRIM(Text1.text)

Open in new window


I would like to know how i can TRIM all testbox in my form in one single code instead of multiple code under all textbox separatly.

Is that possible?

How can i do that?

Thanks again for your help

I don't see a space (is it at the end?) but I believe you. Can you attach your workbook?

Since i copy from excel and past it into a MSHFlexgrid, i wonder if i should TRIM it when i past into the grid instead of the textbox.

Can i trim all  cell in the MSHFlexgrid?

Paste function
    Dim sText As String
    Dim nFixedRows As Long
    Dim nFixedCols As Long
    Dim nRows As Long
    Dim nCols As Long

    nFixedRows = 1
    nFixedCols = 1

    sText = Clipboard.GetText

    nRows = UBound(Split(sText, vbCr)) + 1

    'Dim vRows As Variant
    'vRows = Split(sText, vbCr)
    'nCols = UBound(Split(vRows(0), vbTab)) + 1
    nCols = UBound(Split(Split(sText, vbCr)(0), vbTab)) + 1
    'Debug.Print nCols

    With MSHFlexGrid1
        .FixedRows = nFixedRows
        .FixedCols = nFixedCols

        .Rows = .FixedRows + nRows
        .Cols = .FixedCols + nCols
        .Row = .FixedRows
        .Col = .FixedCols  '(or whatever value you like)

        .RowSel = .Rows - 1
        .ColSel = .Cols - 1

        .Clip = Replace(sText, vbLf, "")
    End With

Okay so it may not be a space that you need to remove. The first thing to try is to replace vblf in the Clip statement with vbcrlf (or do both)

Ok, i have tried : .Clip = Replace(sText, vbcrlf , ""), but i still have the same space in the State field.

So strange

If you copy all excel cell in yellow from the excel file and use the past function in the project in attachment, one of the cell will show in the Text1. You will see the empty space at the end.

Text1.text= Trim(MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(MSHFlexGrid1.Row, 2))

Assuming that the space is at the end of the textbox, please put this someplace in your code  (substituting the name of your textbox) where it will execute. What does it tell you?

I'm sorry. I left out a very important line in my request.

Assuming that the space is at the end of the textbox, please put the following  someplace in your code  (substituting the name of your textbox) where it will execute. What does it tell you?

MsgBox Asc(Right(Text1, 1))

so perhaps in some command button code if the name of the textbox is MyTextBoxName you would put

MsgBox Asc(Right(MyTextBoxName, 1))
