Hi,

What is Definition of Product Name In the ProductTbl?

EDIT Are you using VARCHAR(n)  because CHAR(n) will add blanks at the end?

INSERT INTO IskitTemp ( ProductName ) Select Trim(ProductName) From ProductTbl 

Open in new window

Hi,

With CHAR it adds Blank Space to create a 255 Character Long Field, pls use VARCHAR
