I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do multiple replacements by cascading as show above

Replace(Replace(Replace(Replace ([SomeField], "-",""), " ",""),"?",""),"/")

and so on ...

Of course make a backup before testing any action queries...

Are you looking to remove ALL spaces in the certificate field?  MX's suggestion will do that.  Or are you looking to get rid of only spaces around the dash you are removing?  

You can specify character combinations to replace.  For example " - " can be used for a "space dash space" combination.


Expr7: IIf(Not IsNull([Address Book]![Certificate]),Replace([Address Book]![Certificate]," - ",""),Null)
