How can I remove the spaces from the postal code as per the following?

These are Canadian post codes
A2B 4Y3
A2B4Y3

In the database a user can add the data both ways but on the Crystal report I want to show with no spaces.

The field name is: BVPOSTALCODE and it is a pervasive database

PSQL supports the REPLACE() function, which is used like this:
    SELECT REPLACE(BVPOSTALCODE,' ','') FROM tablename

Or if you wish to use a Crystal formula to do the cleanup,
Replace({BVPOSTALCODE}, " ", "")
