Hello All

Tony yes, that is essentially what I am saying ie. get rid of spaces inside speech marks. But not all of the spaces though ..

Before :
Code:
text text "text text     .ldt" "   text text   "
text text "  text text         .ldt  " "    text     text     "


After

Code:
text text "text text.ldt" "text text"
text text "text text.ldt" "text text"

Thanks for looking

Dave
