Trim Macro: Trim All Of The Data From Rows 2:30 Removing Any Trailing Spaces After The Last Word In Each Cell

Apr 25, 2007

I have come up with this to Trim all of the data from rows 2:30 removing any trailing spaces after the last word in each cell. The macro takes a couple of minutes to run have I got something wrong that is making it run slowly or does the Trim process just take longer?

Dim myRange As Range
Dim myRow As Range
Set myRange = Range("2:30")
If myRange Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application. ScreenUpdating = False
myRange.Replace What:=Chr(160), Replacement:=Chr(32), _
LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, MatchCase:=False
For Each myRow In myRange.Columns
If Application. CountA(myRow) > 0 Then
myRow.TextToColumns Destination:=myRow(1), _
DataType:=xlFixedWidth, FieldInfo:=Array(0, 1)
End If
Next myRow
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

How To Trim All The Spaces From Data

Jan 11, 2012

Normally I would use trim or substitute to get rid of the spaces from the data. However, this time, they all don't work.

some samples below. : some numbers are text version, some are numerical numbers.

So, are there any other ways to get rid of the leading space as well?

'trim' Or 'clean' Spaces

Feb 5, 2010

On a regular basis I have to upload cost to our order system. These cost are sent to me by the suppliers, and the part numbers have to match exactly, (from the excel sheet to the order system), or else the cost won't upload.

I have found that in some of my upload files there is a space, or sometimes several spaces, at the end of the part number. These spaces will screw up the upload. I alwyas use the "Replace" option to replace spaces with nothing, and that usually works.

In the attached sample file, there are 3 part numbers with a space at the end of the part number. I tried using the replace option. That didn't work. I also tried using the =TRIM() formula and the =CLEAN() formula, and neither of those removed the spaces. Why can't I remove the spaces from the end of these part numbers?

Trim Leading And Trailing Spaces From Values

Jun 10, 2008

to trim leading and trailing spaces from values I'm getting from a For Next routine. I'm using c as my variable and Trim(c.value) as the operation.

There are other routines that search for the explicit string that's the result of the trimmed value and some can't be found because the trim as I'm using it isn't trimming.

Trim Entire Column For Extra Spaces

Sep 25, 2007

I'm in need of some VBA code (to be included in a Macro) that will automatically use the TRIM function for all cells in a whole column and that will then replace the values in that column with the resulting TRIM values. I have a LOT of individual files with varying #'s of records in them, so a way that will address all of them (all the cells in the specified column due to varying #'s of records) would be best.

Trim Not Working

Aug 3, 2009

[data] ...

I am having problems removing "2009-642" from the above text string(s) (doesn't matter which)

This is just a sample line and it is not always in the same place so I am afraid a simple mid function from a set starting point will not suffice, the number is also dynamic in size, location and leading digits.

As a result I have created a formula to get rid of the "1 XS0444499197" part of the formula leaving me with " 2009-642 "

Now unfortunately I need to get rid of the spaces (or what look like spaces) just leaving me with the number but infuriatingly I can not get the trim function to work, so I can only guess that it is not in fact reading these spaces as spaces, and I'm at a bit of a loss how to proceed.

Trim Special Characters In Cell To Be To Split Data Into Columns?

Apr 9, 2014

This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.

The formula is below:

[Code] .....

In cell A2 I have the following data:

If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.

I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.

Cutting Out Empty Spaces Of Data?

Feb 17, 2014

I've inherited this monster of a spreadsheet that is consistently being added to and updated. Everyweek a new column is added and data entered. When one row is done, it gets cut and pasted to the Inactive sheet; however, the problem I am encountering if that the rows all have different amounts of columns, depending on when they were added and how long the items were on the sheet.

For example:



So when I go to move row 1, when it becomes inactive, to the Inactive sheet, I have 8 columns of data that I need to cut and paste to make it line up with that sheet, which goes monthly. Is there any way to automatically cut out the empty columns of data for each row so that it can be condensed, rather then going through each one?

Code To Remove Extra Spaces From Data.

Mar 22, 2007

I have a macro which opens one excel file, then copies the data into another, dead easy. However the first file is 'downloaded' from a bespoke package, where (for whatever reason) the package appends a number of spaces (" ") after data in one of the columns,

So sometimes the data will contain one, ten or more extra spaces (no telling how many) ie, it could look like "AB ", "AB ", or "AB " etc

Ideally What i need is a small bit of code that once the data has been imported to my sheet it can run and 'strip' extra spaces from the column, lets say column f, to leave all the data in this column to look like:


I am drawing a blank, any simple lines of code?
