LTrim, RTrim, and Trim functions
Returns a Variant (String) containing a copy of a specified string without leading spaces (LTrim), trailing spaces (RTrim), or both leading and trailing spaces (Trim).
LTrim ( string )
RTrim ( string )
Trim ( string )
This example uses the LTrim function to strip leading spaces, and the RTrim function to strip trailing spaces from a string variable. It uses the Trim function to strip both types of spaces.
Dim MyString, TrimString MyString = " <-Trim-> " ' Initialize string. TrimString = LTrim(MyString) ' TrimString = "<-Trim-> ". TrimString = RTrim(MyString) ' TrimString = " <-Trim->". TrimString = LTrim(RTrim(MyString)) ' TrimString = "<-Trim->". ' Using the Trim function alone achieves the same result. TrimString = Trim(MyString) ' TrimString = "<-Trim->".
