Hi @naveenkumarr

Trim removes only blanks.
Trim → Remove blanks from the start and end of a string.
TrimStart → Removes the blanks from the start of string
TrimEnd → Removes the blanks from the end of string.

To remove the ** you can use replace function.
YourStringVariable.Replace("**","")

Or you can use Regex using the activity Matches in UiPath

But it will trim the end of the text if you want to trim all the special carecator you have to use Replace method you asking Why it simple trim means it will trim end or starting you cant able to trim in the middle so use replace method is very helpful to you trim the special careactor String_op.replace("*","") or you can use REGEX for the replace any special caractor
