Hello i am extracting a string that looks like this “1 311,0” How can i remove the white space between 1 and 3 ?

I have tried the following solutions.
Replace method
Regex.Replace
String…Replace(" “,”")

where you are getting that string from?
@langsem
"1 311,0".Replace(" ", [String].Empty)

@langsem, String.Replace(" ", “”) should work. If its not then its not a space but it must be some special character. Usually it happens if string/value is copy pasted.

i just made a placeholder string to test it out, but originally i get the string from a desktop app

it’s working fine for me!

think maybe the syntax that i am getting from the app its different
Will this look for all whitespaces ?

yes! @langsem

Ok, going to try. Thanks for the help :slight_smile:

@langsem
If string.Replace is not working for you, use regex replace function by specifying the pattern “+” and Replacement as String.Empty in the properties.
This always make sure that all the space will be replaced.

If you think the data from your app is returning some other characters instead of space, copy paste only that character in the pattern along with space.
For example, if your app returns ‘a’ in place of space as 1a311,0 => your pattern = [a-z ]+
