Hi,

Im trying to line up indentations in my modules, when i highlight the code and attempt to edit using Format>Horizontal Spacing, the option to do so is greyed out

I have attached a screenshot

I have stepped in and out of the code but the problem still remain, has anyone a solution?

Thanks

I believe the Format menu is only for use with Drawn objects such as buttons on User Forms.

Thanks

There is no Format menu in the VB window (if we are talking about Access here).  The indentation is determined by the setting in the Options dialog, opened from the Tools menu in the VB window:
VB Options dialogIt is the same in the Excel VB window.
If your code has irregular indentations, you have to fix them manually.  The setting in the Options dialog only applies to future indents.

If all you're trying to do is indent, you might try Smart Indenter:

http://www.oaltd.co.uk/Indenter/Default.htm

It's free, and I've used it in every version of Access from 2003 - 2013.

If you need more power, you might consider FMS CodeTools:

Total Visual Code Tools is very powerful, with tons of features. I use it every day in my Access work and would be very hard pressed to work in Access VBA without it.

you can use the "Indent" and "Outdent" from the Edit menu
