Blanks before and after cell values, additional spaces between the words in your cells may be a problem when you filter, match or merge tables. You can polish up your data by deleting all unwanted spaces in one go. The Cell Cleaner for Microsoft Excel add-in will quickly remove leading and trailing spaces, trim spaces between words to one and delete non-breaking spaces (' ') from your worksheets.

Delete unwanted characters from the entire range
Your spreadsheet can contain irrelevant characters you used to remove one by one. The Cell Cleaner plug-in automates such tasks. Wipe out all non-printing characters like line breaks, delete all digits, letters or special mathematical, currency and letter like symbols and punctuation marks. Or just use the custom characters box and enter whichever values you need to remove.

Convert text and change case in Excel
When copying numerical data to Excel, you can get it stored as text. You can also indicate that digits must be treated as text yourself if you use the apostrophe before them. Both options can cause problems with calculations or result in irregular sorting. With this nifty add-in you can quickly convert the digits back to number format and delete spaces and apostrophes at the same time.
If you have several characters here and there in your table that you need to replace with a different one, use the Convert characters option instead of repeating the same find-and-replace steps. It will substitute all the characters you enter individually.
Extra line breaks is another common problem that the add-in solves, you can simply replace them with spaces or any other characters. More about changing number format, replacing irrelevant characters and line breaks.
