Rudy writes "I have a column in my db which is char(40). There are entries in this with the same text, but some come up with a length of 24 and some 25. This sugggests to me that there is a blank trailing space. Am I right?
However, if I update it to iteslf using a Rtrim, nothing changes.
Is is something to do with ANSI padding?
How can I get these entries to be identical, please?
