Subj:   TRIM and WHITE Spaces
From:   Bagare, Vinay


I have a question on TRIM function.

I have a production table and a chararacter data type defined as CHAR(9).

There are several white spaces values in this column.

Some of them are 2,5 and some of them are 9 (like ' ', ' ' and '').

When I tried using TRIM function and grouping on this column, I find 3 entries for white spaces.

I was under impression that TRIM(FROM BOTH Col) will result in an empty string ('').

Do you happen to know why this is happening?

I am sure I am missing some thing here.

I tried using various editors to see if the values have speacial characters but in vain.

Please let me know.
