Couple of ways...

Trim(YourString) removes leading and trailing spaces
Val(YourString) returns the numerical value starting with the left-most character

Then, you can use CCur( the above), CLng( the above), etc. to convert it to a currency, long integer, etc.

is the data coming from the textfile  strTempTXT ?

Set tsRead = fso.OpenTextFile(strTempTXT, ForReading)
Set tsWrite = fso.OpenTextFile(strDestination, ForWriting)
If Not tsRead.AtEndOfStream Then
  tsRead.SkipLine
  While Not tsRead.AtEndOfStream
     inLine = Replace(tsRead.ReadLine,space(1),"")   '<<< use this line
     tsWrite.WriteLine inLine
  Wend
End If
