I have a textbox that contains text and want to paste text after the text it contains with 1 space.
this does not work:
Private Sub txtDescription_Click()
txtDescription.SelStart = 0
txtDescription.SelText = Len(txtDescription.Text)
txtDescription.SelStart = Len(txtDescription.SelText) + 1
End Sub
what is wrong ?

You can do something like this to your text

txtDescription.SelText = Replace(txtDescription.Text, " ", "")


This will get rid of any space.

Why not just?

    txtDescription.Text = txtDescription.Text & " " & someStringVariable

Thanks this works:
someStringVariable needs to be the clipboard contents
txtDescription.Text = txtDescription.Text & " "
txtDescription.SelStart = Len(txtDescription.Text) + 1
