Clarify 'remove spaces' please. Should 'This is a test' become 'Thisisatest'? Or leading spaces? Or fields contain no data but spaces?

There are a few ways to do this, here's an example.
In Sheet1 VBA:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    If Target.Column = 2 Then
        If Target.Row = 3 Or Target.Row = 4 Or Target.Row = 12 Then
            Target.Value = Replace(Target.Value, " ", "")
        End If
    End If
End Sub

It works great, but it won't work unless I delete the existing macro already in that sheet.  How do I combine the two codes into one?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim changed As Range, c As Range
    Dim cVal

    Const myR As String = "B5,B9" '<- Your range(s)
    Set changed = Intersect(Target, Range(myR))
    If Not changed Is Nothing Then
        Application.EnableEvents = False
        For Each c In changed
            cVal = c.Value
            Select Case True
                Case IsEmpty(cVal), IsNumeric(cVal), _
                        IsDate(cVal), IsError(cVal)
                    ' Do nothing
                Case Else
                    c.Value = UCase(cVal)
            End Select
        Next c
        Application.EnableEvents = True
    End If
End Sub
