How to identify non-displaying characters in a text string?

Hello - trying to import some crap data, and I'm getting text values that have trailing non-display characters that Trim() won't... Trim...

is there a function that does the reverse of Chr(), so I can parse through and see what exactly these trailing characters are?

Thanks

try this function

Function AlphaNumOnly(strIn As String) As String

Dim j As Integer
Dim varStr As String
varStr = strIn
While j < Len(varStr)
   j = j + 1
   Select Case Asc(Mid(varStr, j, 1))
            Case 32 To 126
            ' do nothing
   Case Else
      ' get rid of everything else:
      varStr = Left(varStr, j - 1)  &  Mid(varStr, j + 1)
      If j > 1 Then j = j - 1
   End Select
Wend
AlphaNumOnly = varStr
End Function
