If I use 's/ //g' then all spaces will be removed
like if I have a value in a field which is like below
,xi hy,y,z
,dg hy,c,v
t,l,m,n
,h,s,k
,k,,y
z,j, ,p

I will get this

space,xihy,y,z
,dghy,c,v
t,l,m,n
space,h,s,k
,k,,y
z,j, ,p
If you see xi hy and dg hy...they become together xihy and dghy
I dont want that
not all spaces will be removed but if there is a null column
, , then it should be ,, and this should be applicable to first field also.
Sorry for any confusion. Also here when in row 1 and 4 when i try to create space in the column1 field it doesnot take in this forum ..so I wrote space there

SYBASE_RESULT(3)														  SYBASE_RESULT(3)

sybase_result - Get result data

SYNOPSIS
string sybase_result (resource $result, int $row, mixed $field) DESCRIPTION
Returns the contents of the cell at the row and offset in the specified Sybase result set. When working on large result sets, you should consider using one of the functions that fetch an entire row (specified below). As these functions return the contents of multiple cells in one function call, they're MUCH quicker than sybase_result(). Also, note that specifying a numeric offset for the field argument is much quicker than specifying a fieldname or tablename.fieldname argument. Recommended high-performance alternatives: sybase_fetch_row(3), sybase_fetch_array(3) and sybase_fetch_object(3). PARAMETERS
o $result - o $row - o $field - The field argument can be the field's offset, or the field's name, or the field's table dot field's name (tablename.fieldname). If the column name has been aliased ('select foo as bar from...'), use the alias instead of the column name. RETURN VALUES
sybase_result(3) returns the contents of one cell from a Sybase result set. PHP Documentation Group SYBASE_RESULT(3)
