Not able to remove blank spaces from string

I'm implementing a feature which reads comma separated txt file from server(one line at a time).

Format of file is fixed, There are 3 columns on each row.

After reading the row from file I insert it in a database table.

But first value of each row aoutomatically appends two blank spaces, even if there are no blank spaces at the begining of each row.

I tried to use "TRIM/LTRIM/Replace" to remove blank spece from the first value of each row, but didn't succeed.

I even tried to use trim in stored procedure itself.

Can you please provide me a work around to remove blank spaces in this scenario.

Thanks in advance

Check how you are using your Trim function. The Trim function does not modify the string you call it on. For example:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim aString As String = "   Example of String  _   "
  2. aString.Trim()    'does not modify value of aString
In order to get the Trim to stick, you have to assign the result of the Trim() operation:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. aString = aString.Trim()
If this doesn't work, post your code as you are currently using it so we can see exactly what isn't working.

Dear Joseph,

Thanks for your reply.

I solved it, Actually, I was using VbCrlf after each row, this was causing the issue, I have removed VbCrlf and I am not having blank spaces after each row.

Thanks again.
