How can i remove all the spaces from a text string? The string can be any length with an unknown number of spaces.

"I am alive"

becomes

"Iamalive"

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Hi, If you only want to remove the spaces infront of the text string and at the back go to your function button (Fx) on the toolbar. Select all functions and choose "trim". This will take away the space in front and at the back without removing the spaces within the text string.

Hope it helps
