Hi experts, can you please help to remove the first space (using sql query-access) coming after the comma of all data in a table field Full_NAME, here comma is coming in between the last name and first name.
The names in the column looks like as follows,
Tharoor, Sasi
George, Mathew T
Thomas, Obama L.

you can use an update query, back up your table first

update tableName
set [Full_NAME]=replace([Full_NAME] & ", ",", ",",")

if you are sure that all names have comma, you can use

update tableName
set [Full_NAME]=replace([Full_NAME],", ",",")
