    It is essential to indent code correctly for readability...

    Every time I paste to the correct position below an indented code line it ends up one tab stop further left than the correctly indented line above.

    Select Value        'Before I paste PopulateList()
    Case MenuOption(0)
              Query = 
    "SELECT * FROM Countries ORDER BY Country"
    Case MenuOption(1)
    Select Value        'After I paste PopulateList()
    Case MenuOption(0)
               Query = 
    "SELECT * FROM Countries ORDER BY Country"
    "Country","CapitalCity")     '<<Too far left
    Case MenuOption(1)
    Can this be fixed with an IDE setting or is something else wrong?

    I have the same issue and I found an easy answer.
    After pasting code just hit Alt-F and it will be properly formatted.

    you can also disable the autoformatting on pasted content in the options. (Tools > IDE Options > [ ] Autoformat when pasting)
