Hi,

I need to truncate all the data in each cell in column I to just the first 20 characters (alpha & numeric) I was trying to use this but this example truncates the data in all columns. It doesn't look like it should, but it does.

Edit: I'm not trying to delete spaces, just make the max = the first 20 characters.

    Sheets("Sheet1").Select
    Columns("I:I").Select
    Dim rCell As Range
    For Each rCell In Range("I1", Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp))
        rCell = Left(rCell, 20)
    Next rCell
