hello

i am trying to find a way to remove spaces from an entry in a mysql column. for example, if there is a column `item` which has an entry ABC 123456, i need to remove the space and make it ABC123456. i would like a way such as an update because there are hundreds of these to remove. i would appreciate any help or advice. thanks

this should do:
UPDATE yourtable SET `item` = replace(`item`, ' ', '' )
where `item` LIKE '% %'
