I am trying to remove trailing spaces from entires in a column.      In
another column I have used the expression of the following format in each of
the cells next to those that I want to change :    =TRIM(C200)    .  This
has made no difference to the length of the entries in the column and the
trailing spacess have not been eliminated.

Can anyone help please
