    Replace "A " by "A" in a cell

    Good morning everyone,

    I have attached a simplified sample of my problem.

    I need to filter people (Name) by categories. (eg 2 categories prossible)
    1) category A -> "A"
    2) category B -> "B"

    The problem is that I received these names with their associated categories from third parties and instead of having "A" I often have "A " or " A" or " a ".
    how could I normalized all of them to "A" without any space.

    thanks you for your time.
    -Phil

    thanks to both of you.

    .replace and application.Trim() both serves my purposes.

    Very helpful, I always use workarounds but this address my issue permanently.

    PS: to AB33, when using ".value", I usually put a range before .value. I understand that we are within a "with ... end with Statement", but does it apply the trim function to each cell simultaneously or is it actually doing a loop very quickly?

    I used current region ,instead of range. The code applies to the region with out looping.
