How To Remove Spaces From Object Property Before Writing To File

I have the following code that writes some info about the computer to a file. The only thing I don't really like about it is when it writes one of the properties (the computer model) it has extra whitespace on the end of it (either a tab or some spaces). Is there any way that I can remove that whitespace before printing the info to the file? Here is the code:

Sub QueryInstances(objClass, Properties, Conditions)
    If Conditions = "None" Then
        strSelect = "Select " & Properties & " From " & objClass
    Else
        strSelect = "Select " & Properties & " From " & objClass & " Where " & Conditions
    End If
    Set objClassName = _
        objWMIService.ExecQuery (strSelect, , wbemFlagReturnImmediately + wbemFlagForwardOnly)
    For Each objComponent In objClassName
        intCount = 1
        objFile.Write (",")
        For Each objProperty In objComponent.Properties_
            If InStr(1, Properties, objProperty.Name, vbTextCompare) Then
                If intCount = 0 Then
                    objFile.Write (",")
                End If
                If intCount = 1 Then
                    intCount = 0
                End If
                If IsNull(objProperty.Value) Then
                    objFile.Write ("NULL")
                Else
                    If objProperty.CIMType <> wbemCimtypeUint32 And _
                        objProperty.CIMType <> wbemCimtypeUint64 And _
                        objProperty.CIMType <> wbemCimtypeSint64 Then
                        objFile.Write (objProperty.Value & GetUnits(objClass, objProperty.Name))
                    Else
                        strUnits = GetUnits(objClass, objProperty.Name)
                        intValue = SizeFormat(objProperty.Name, objProperty.Value, strUnits)
                        objFile.Write (intValue)
                    End If
                End If
            End If
        Next
    Next
End Sub

Use the Trim(yourtext) function. There are several posibilities:

1. Trim(text) will eliminate spaces from both edges
2. LTrim(text) eliminate spaces from the left side
3. RTrim(text) from the right side

Cool, here's what I've got:

If ObjClass = "Win32_ComputerSystem" Then
  MyVar = RTrim(ObjProperty)
  objFile.Write (MyVar)
Else
  objFile.Write (objProperty.Value & GetUnits(objClass, objProperty.Name))
End If


Thanks for the help.
