I personally find the version with underscores easier to read, but I think it may be a matter of personal preference (albeit a weak one).

The underscore already has a role in VBA separating the procedure name from the object name.
Code:
Private Sub SomeControl_AfterUpdate
That was NOT a real world example. strPath_Ext or strFile_Name are more likely examples.

Your point about the role of underscore is well taken.

I find that often, the underscore is hidden, making it look like a space. I find this disconcerting!
