Hi,

Is there a way to remove any empty space in my ChurchTbl.ChurchName field.

My javascript is not working correct because of empty spaces at the end of the churchName.

some record don't have any empty spaces and some do have.  

I need to check for an empty spaces and remove it .


Thanks,


SELECT CityTbl.CityID, ChurchTbl.ChurchID, ChurchTbl.ChurchName
FROM StateTbl 
LEFT JOIN CityTbl ON CityTbl.StateID = StateTbl.StateID
LEFT JOIN ChurchTbl ON ChurchTbl.ChCityID = CityTbl.CityID
WHERE ChurchTbl.ChurchName <> "null" and ChurchTbl.ChurchStatus = 1
and CityTbl.CityStatus = 1 and StateTbl.StateStatus = 1
and ChurchTbl.ChurchID >=  13773 
order by ChurchTbl.ChurchName ASC

You can use the TRIM() function. You can even update the table itself so you don't have to worry about it:
UPDATE ChurchTbl Set ChurchName=TRIM(ChurchName) WHERE LEFT(ChurchName,1)=' ' OR RIGHT(ChurchName,1)=' '
