How Do I Trim Comma Space At The End Of A String?

I have a list box with an onClick that grabs the selection(s) made and pops them into a textbox on another form seperated by a ", ".

I don't want the last selection made to end with the ", "

txtselection = strList
Trim ([txtselection]Right(", "))

How do I use the Trim and Instr function to remove a ", " at the end of the string?

Trim Comma Delimited Value Stored In A Text Field
With microsofts article, I have made to store multi options value of a list box in a text box with comma. However, since these are IDs being stored, I want these values to run a query and get results also.

But I am confused since have never used comma like in query

Remove Comma From String In Query
I have this query:

INSERT INTO 1_2_06 ( Issue_ID, Assigned_To, ListType )
SELECT Issue_ID, Assigned_To, 'QPT'
WHERE QPTActions.Entry_Date<=DateValue('1/2/2006') And QPTActions.Close_Date>DateValue('1/2/2006');

The Assigned_To values are a Lastname, Firstname format as they come out of the first database. But I need the comma stripped before they get entered into the INSERT database. Is it possible to do this on the fly?

Search String For Space
I have a table containing names. Unfortunately, the first and middle name are in the same field, and not all have middle names. I need to separate them out in a report. Is it possible to search the field and break at the first space?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Left Trim / Right Trim

Does anyone know of a way that I can get rid of characters off a product code so all I am left with is just the characters greater than zero?


AA0000000652618... I only want to be left with 652618.

Would it be best to use a left trim or to use a right trim function? Unfortunately there is no standard for the product numbers... meaning that some numbers are 15 characters in length (as is above) but others maybe shorter or longer...

Also where I would add in the Right or Left Trim piece of code?

Trim Numbers
Tried to search for this, maybe I am searching the wrong term.

Anyways.. I have a table linked from a large mainframe, and what I am trying to do is trim any numbers that are 1 million and over, and still keep it a number.

Currently I have this:


What I need is to have it remain as a number, seems that the left function turns it into a string value.

Trim Query
Using the built in function within access 2000 how can I do the following

I have the following types of number in a table


I want to be able to trim the leading 8 of the first number but on secon number I need to trim the 80 off the number.

I can quite easily trim off the 8 off both numbers t am left with a leading 0 on the second number. This has to also be trimmed.

The number will always be 5 digits long

Is there anyway of doing this by using the built in function Len or is there another way.

Mid Or Trim Function?
a maybe simple question:

With the mid function one can make sure that a part of a text is token to display on a report, output or whatever.

But how to do the following:
"John Isaac"
"William Bill"
"Michael Robert"

In the report the following has to be visible:

The use of mid is i think possible, and starting with the first letter as well, but how to determine when the space is coming?

Please advise!

Trim Function
Hi there

I saw my question in an online tutorial once but can't find it.

I have about a thousand records and I'm just concerned about one field.
I have to strip away part of the text.

Heres an example:


I have to strip away all of the left part from the ascii character (/)

so all the records would look like this:


I'm sure there's a way to do this with Trim, maybe Ltrim but I'm not sure how this would be done. Does anyone have any ideas. I have over 1000 records which means it wouldn't be practicle to do it manually.

Importing Problem Due To Comma
I use TransferText to import some data. However, I am getting errors where the data is greater than $1,000 because it has a comma in it! But the file is comma delimited.

The row of data that causes problems looks like this:


They have put quotes around it.

How do you get around this problem?

SProc With Comma Value As Parameter
How do I send a comma value to a stored procedure?

In Denmark we use comma as decimal separator (whereas US uses dot) and I'm having issues with sending Single values to a stored procedure! If I use dot as a separator Access will simply remove the dot. E.g. 2.5 turns into 25 and 2,5 doesn't get inserted at all (or updated for that matter). If I just run the query from the database window all is fine but not through ADO. Is there anyway to tell Access that this is a Single value and not a delimiter?

Regards, Jon.

I have this code:

MaxCPC = Bid2 / 7

But I want MaxCPC to be stored to 2 decimal places. If I click in the field, quite often I get something like 2.3256 but I only want 2.32.

Error With Trim Function
I have used the Trim function in a query and am getting an error. At first I was concatanating several fields but have cut it back to the most basic form but still receive the error. The error says that the trim expression failed. Here is the code I used:

fullname: trim([last]) + ", " + trim([first]) + " " + trim([middle])

I then used
fullname: trim([last])

I got the same error. Just using the field last does not generate an error.

Any ideas? I created the DB in Access XP and am getting the error in 2003. I tried the changes in 2003 but still got the error.

thanks. :)

Trim Function In Query
Hi all,
I have a local table that has data imported from a spreadsheet
and we have discovered that one of the fields brings in trailing spaces. Since the Access DB has some querys to manaipulate the data I thought I would just create a qry that would trim the value of that field but I am getting error messages when I try to run the query.
Basically it is a update query with the field value written as:-

Code: Trim([Code])

I am leaving the update field in the qry blank and it complains about it not having a destination field which is understandable so how do I go about trimming the value of a field in a query. Is it even possible ?

Thanks in advance,

Trim Like An Excel Mofo
Hi there.

I have a little problem.

I have a file that I split into little code files each with their own little Code and description. Now whoever the smart one was that is making these codes and descriptions has put double spaces between some descriptions and before and after some others.

Now in excel I don't have a problem removing them. I just use the good old Trim() function. But in access like most other programs the trim function just removes the leading and trailing spaces but leaves the double spaces inside the actual strings there.

Now my question is this. Is it possible to write a query or macro that would inspect each description and search for double spaces and either remove them if their on the end/beginning of a string or replace them with a single space if they are in the inside of a string.

Basically a search and replace function i guess is what im looking for here.

Query Expression Trim
Hi Guys

Another expression that's troubling me. I need an expression that can take this field.

Z:MusicDownloadDDale DaviesUntitled EPDale Davies - Untitled EP - 05 - No Perfect Child.mp3

Trim the front to the 4th ie. Dale DaviesUntitled EPDale Davies - Untitled EP - 05 - No Perfect Child.mp3

Then the end of it ie Dale Davies

So all I have left in a seperate field is the Name. Also I'd like to know what parameters to change to trim to the 2nd or 3rd .

Thanks alot guys

Trim Field To 35 Characters
I have a field "DisplayURL" that contains values of various lengths. Some are only 12 or 13 characters long, but others are 50 characters long. I need to run an update query to "cut-off" all the characters past the 35 limit - so that all records in the field will be 35 characters or less.

I've searched this forum and online and there are similar posts but nothing quite like this, I thought it would be a trim function but I keep reading that it only removes spaces. Any ideas?

Trim Function In Access?
Dear all:

Is there a trim function that exists in access vb so I can apply to a text box to remove irregular spaces in a textbox field?

I am importing an excel file and a column has names with irregular spaces in it. Hopefully this trim function can solve that issue.

Many thanks,

Exporting Decimal Comma As Point
I have a table with the numbers formatted as example 9999,99. My mysql database i'm exporting to uses the point as decimal sign. Can I change my query so it outputs the decimal sign as point instaed of a comma?

In my international setting decimal is a comma and should stay a comma.
