About Remove Spaces From Selected Cells Excel Macro

If you have a list of data in an Excel worksheet that contains extra spaces, you can use a trim function to remove those spaces. This is a common problem when you import data from another source that doesn't remove the spaces. The TRIM function in Excel will remove any leading, trailing, or double spaces in a cell. To use the TRIM function, select the cells you want to clean up, then click on the Formulas tab. In the Text group, click on the TRIM function. In the resulting dialog box, select the cell or range of cells you want to clean up. Click OK and the extra spaces will be removed from your selected cells.
