Remove space from end of all records in a table

I have a table that contains a lot of usernames. Some of the usernames is stored with a trailing space, and I need to remove this. It means that "johndoe[space]" should be "johndoe".

This SQL returns all records that has usernames ending with space:

SELECT TOP (1000) UserName FROM tblUserVisit WHERE (UserName LIKE '% ')

Open in new window


How can this SQL be modified to remove the trailing space from the usernames?

this will remove spaces in the end... If you want to remove spaces on the begining then you can use TRIM..

update 
tblUserVisit 
set UserName =rtrim(UserName )
where (UserName LIKE '% ')

Open in new window
