Really Stumped now!

This DB that I am working on requires that raw data from an excel spread sheet be imported to FMP.

For some reason in a text field I call "machine"

The Excel Cell has a "space" after the last charecter that carries into the import...so the import result = 114A (space)

I have a seperate table that has machine properties based on machine number, like 114A.

In the table in question I am doing a lookup to fill to fields based on the relationship between the identical machine numbers.

The problem is, since Excle is putting this ******* space after the machine number, the look-ups won;t work.

I know this is the problem, because if I manually enter the machine number, the look-up works properly.

I have tried making my machine "name" in the related database to have a space at the end of the machine number, but that doesn't work.

Any ideas how to fix this? I have tried limiting the number of charecter to 4 in the field, but that doesn't work.

I'm really stumped.
