I think this should be easy but can't figure it out. I have a row with data and need to remove the blank spaces between the text. So for example, I have something that looks as follows:

Tim Smith
Frank Bruno

And need it to look like this:
TimSmith
FrankBruno

Is there a formula I can use to accomplish this? I tried =clean & =trim but neither worked

Have a look at Substitute or you could just do a Find...Replace.

Simple way,

select the column,
hit Ctrl+F

Find " " --> just the space bar, no quotations
Replace --> leave blank,

Replace all

Now you are done,
