They are different and will be treated as different

Where field='London  Bridge' will not return where field is 'London Bridge'

Did you want to treeat them as the same?

replace('london  bridge','  ',' ') = 'London Bridge'

replaces double space with single space. This does not address multiple spaces

the following WHERE clause returns the same data

WHERE      Location ='Asia'

WHERE       Location ='Asia                  '

The are treated the same.

try this

select 'same'
where 'london bridge'='london     bridge'

select 'same'
where 'london bridge'='london bridge'

True...

It is just the suffix white spaces

select 'same'
where 'london bridge'='london bridge    '

select 'same'
where 'london bridge'='london bridge'
