    You need to take PO Line Balance Qty and not PO Line Amount Balance.

    PO Line Amount Balance has space at the end and can be removed with SUBSTITUTE function.

    Try =SUBSTITUTE(A1, " ", "")
    Change A1 is your desired cell.

    However, this will return you a text. (So 5 03 will become 503 (a text value).

    If you expecting number use: =--SUBSTITUTE(A1, " ", "") but this will return you error for text values (so 5A03 will become #VALUE!)
