I have the certainty that in some values ¿¿in this column S_FIRST_NAME exist 2 spaces between the names.

How I can know if 2 or more spaces with other S_LAST_NAME column, this data is important before modifying my stored procedure.

Something simple like

select S_LAST_NAME from table where S_LAST_NAME like '%  %'

would find you two or more spaces in a column.

(That is two spaces in between the percent signs).
