LTrim; RTrim; and Trim Functions


Returns a copy of a string without leading spaces (LTrim), trailing spaces (RTrim), or both leading and trailing spaces (Trim).




The string argument is any valid string expression. If string contains Null, Null is returned.

The following example uses the LTrim, RTrim, and Trim functions to trim leading spaces, trailing spaces, and both leading and trailing spaces, respectively:

Dim MyVar
MyVar = LTrim("   vbscript ")   ' MyVar contains "vbscript ".
MyVar = RTrim("   vbscript ")   ' MyVar contains "   vbscript".
MyVar = Trim("   vbscript ")   ' MyVar contains "vbscript".
