What's the rule on its use? I've used it infrequently but I enter a program from a book exactly as it was typed and got an error message. I removed the space underscore and put everything on one line rather than deal with it.

    :
    Just preference, and also for some people it is clearer to understand as you do not have to scroll i guess. Personally i just use one line, and if it is a long variable assignment then i just do as shown in the example below, but generally for function names and such i just keep it on one line

    strData = "i am just using this"
    strData = strData & " as an example."

    Now strData would contain:

    strData = "i am just using this as an example."
