Trim spaces in cells or columns in Excel

The preceding and trailing spaces in cells are often unnoticeable. A cell that look like 'word' can actually be 'word '. This causes problem when you filter, match table, join (merge), or find duplicates. Therefore, it is always safe to do some trimming first, to trim out the preceding and trailing spaces if there is any.

Select a range of cells, invoke 'Selected Area->Trim...', the cells will be trimmed in-place

You can also select a single cell in a table's column, invoke 'Column->Trim...', this will trim the entire column, and the trimmed values will be placed in a newly inserted column next to the original column.
