Locate hidden characters in a MSSQL field

Last Modified: 2015-02-27
In our inventory master table it looks like we have some duplicate item numbers but they are in fact different because one has invalid hidden characters at the end of the visible item number.

How can I display the hex representation of the item number so that I know what to correct?
