I have a sheet which is a mixture of SharePoint list imports, pasting from a webpage etc. During this process, some zero width spaces are littered throughout the document. Of course it's helpful that I can't see them and don't know there is even an issue until I export to my other programme.

How can I sweep through my entire sheet and REMOVE all zero width spaces? Kill them all? Dead?
I've left the below text with some of those before the L

Logistics Finance & Medical

And here is what it looks like when I put it into a unicode viewer. And this is on one cell. I have 2500 rows and about 20 columns.

You mean in the completely different site forum? On a different domain?
Where they asked me to provide an example sheet, which was completely not required?
