A character string.
Trims leading and trailing spaces.
ALLTRIM() removes leading and trailing blanks, (space and NULL characters) and CRLF and tabs from a Input_String. With any function that compares or searches for values, you may want to use ALLTRIM() so that you do not have to figure in blank spaces in order to find matching values. You also use ALLTRIM() within expressions that concatenate fields. This eliminates the blank spaces between the values that would otherwise result. For more information, see the TRIM()function description.
dim PROD_NAME as C PROD_NAME = "Silver Fox Irons " ALLTRIM("Silver Fox Irons ") -> "Silver Fox Irons" SMATCH("Silver Fox Irons", PROD_NAME) -> FALSE SMATCH("Silver Fox Irons", ALLTRIM(PROD_NAME)) -> TRUE
