trim dropdown value before executing query

Access 2010 vba

I have a combobox where the row source is a query.
When a value/copied and pasted./ typed into the combo box.

The query brings back the result.

I want to trim the value pasted before the query executes ?


me.cbo_Names = trim(me.cbo_names)

Thanks

Also, what is the purpose of trimming the value?  Trim() just removes extra space.  Do you need something more than that?

with me.controlname
   if isnull(.value) then exit sub
   .value = trim(.value)
end with
