Access: Trim Function


In Access, the Trim function returns a copy of a string with leading and trailing spaces removed.

The syntax for the Trim function is:

Trim ( string )

The string argument can be any string expression. If string contains Null, Null is returned.


Trim (" WebCheatSheet ")         returns "WebCheatSheet"
Trim ("tutorials ")                     returns "tutorials"
Trim (" articles")                      returns "articles"

VBA Code

Dim MyString, TrimString
MyString = " Access "
TrimString = Trim(MyString)

This example uses the Trim function to strip both types of spaces. Now the MyString variable would contain the value "Access".

SQL query

You can also use the Trim function in a query.

SELECT Trim([ItemDesired]) AS Expr1
FROM Orders

If you'd like to see how it works, enter SQL statement and press Execute
