I am listing a large number of fields in an sql statement that is too long for the width of the screen.

I have tried the underscore and  & _ but to no avail

How do you break into the middle of an INSERT INTO statement to create a line break without loosing the correct  syntax

I do it like this:

Dim sql As String

sql = "INSERT INTO MyTable(Col1, Col2, Col3) " _
  & " VALUES(" & Me.tx1 & "," _
  & Me.tx2 & "," _
  & Me.tx3 & ")"

Or you can do this:

sql = "INSERT INTO MyTable(Col1, Col2, Col3) " 
sql = sql  & " VALUES(" & Me.tx1 & ","
sql = sql  & Me.tx2 & ","
sql = sql  & Me.tx3 & ")"

do you mean the statement is in a file?
just let the statement be without line breaks - although it wraps onto the next line there isn't a line break and so should execute ok.

What code window are you referring to?

Are you trying to execute the INSERT using VBA?
