do u just want to replace a single character?
 in that case:

OutString = Replace(Instring, chr(172), "")

if u want to take off all non-numeric characters, for eg...

jus have a loop like:

i = 1
while i < len(Instring)
if not IsNUmeric(mid(Instring,i,1)) then mid(Instring,i,1) = chr(0)
wend
OutString = Replace(Instring, chr(0), "")
