    remove characters from cells in column

    Hello,
    I have a file that has a 3-digit number in column B. However, it also contains blanks and "+" symbol. How do I remove the blanks and "+" symbol from the cells. See the attached file for the view of the cells and data.
    Thank You,
    Bizdanny
