In case you want a VBA code to remove all the trailing spaces in only active sheet then this article will definitely help you. Many times we left a space at the end in error or sometimes we copy data from web & do not notice. In this article, we will learn how to eliminate the space left in error.
Question): In Excel, we can use TRIM function with SUBSTITUTE & CHAR i.e. =TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(A1,CHAR(160)," ")) to remove trailing space at the end of any text.
I would like a Macro to help me in removing all the unnecessary spaces left at the end of the string.
To get the code for removing space at end of the text; we need to follow the below steps to launch VB editor.
Copy the following code in worksheet module
Dim c As Range, rngConstants As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set rngConstants = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells(2, 2)
On Error GoTo 0
If Not rngConstants Is Nothing Then
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
'trim cells incl char 160
For Each c In rngConstants
c.Value = Trim$(Application.Clean(Replace(c.Value, Chr(160), " ")))
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Note: The above macro will run only on activesheet.
In this way, we can remove the trailing spaces at the end, using VBA code.
