Remving single quotes from in spreadsheets exported from Access

Hi All,

I need your assistance. I have a number of spreadsheets that have been exported from Access databases. The spreadsheets contains single quotes at the beginning of the text in cell values, so far I have been using the =CLEAN() function, then copying the values of the columns to another column, but lately most of the columns in the spreadsheets contain the single quote.

Can I remove the single quotes from the spreadsheets that are in the spreadsheets due to Access exporting issues using a macro rather than using =CLEAN()  for each column???

Thanks in advance.
