Hi,
Add another loop for print the empty space

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim a As Integer, i as Integer, j as Integer, k As Integer

    a = 5
    For i = 1 To 5
        For k = 1 To i - 1
            Print "   ";
        Next

        For j = a To 1 Step -1
            Print " * ";
        Next j
        Print
        a = a - 1
    Next i
  
End Sub
