Hello Jasmine,

You’re looking for the Trim method. You can then give it something like " Hello world " and get “Hello world” back without the leading or trailing space characters.’

Conversely, you can try to remove the space character when you’re selecting the Tax ID.

Thanks @dmccammond

Can plz advice how exactly trim method can be used in the following command.


At that point, I wouldn’t use the Trim method. I would instead change how you are selecting. You can add the space that you’re trying to get rid of. Your code would look like this:

ClientInformation.Substring(ClientInformation.IndexOf(“TaxID:”)+“TaxID: ”.Length).Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray)(0)

However, you may want to look at Regex as that would be a much cleaner way of pulling out that information. If you just want something that works for right now, what I gave above should do.
