    Unanswered: Cursor moving backwards

    Has anybody experience this?

    When typing code the cursor keeps moving back to the last character
    I have typed. For example if I was typing

    Dim cbal As Currency

    I would type "Dim" go to enter the "c" but the cursor would have
    removed the space I have put in and enter "Dimc". I dont know why this is
    doing this and and only does it sometimes.

    You have a Timer event running. When it does, the code is compiled and that's what's moving your cursor back -- it removes the "unnecessary" space.

    Either stop the Timer event(s) while you are coding or put up with it!
