    Project numbers were previously typed in a colum with either one or two blank
    spaces (i.e. P - 000-934-042). There should not be any blank spaces. I am
    trying to remove these blank spaces without having to retype so many numbers.
    The database contains about 3500 entries with about 400 typed in this
    incorrect format. I know there's a formula in Excel that can remove blank
    spaces within a column, but I don't know about Access.

    You can use the Replace function to do this.

    Try and use the replace function to replace space with empty

    Select Replace(FieldName," ","") As NewName From TableName

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
