    Non-printing characters (2000)

    Is there a way to remove non-printing characters? I have tried Trim, Clean and none of them will remove the characters that are after my text. The text came from another program that was imported into Excel. When I click in a cell it looks as if I have two spaces but when i try to do a find and replace ito remove them , it does not work.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Hi,
    If you copy one of the characters and then paste it into the Find/Replace dialog (replacing it with nothing) does that remove it? If not, can you post a sample of the problem so we can see what these characters actually are.
