Remove whitespaces

    Remove whitespaces step removes all whitespace (invisible) characters from text including leading and trailing whitespaces as well as any whitespace characters within the text.

    • Input column: required, a string column to remove the whitespaces from.

    • Target column: required, configure the column which will receive the output. Output will always be of string type.

      • Write result to the current column: overwrite the input column with the result.

      • Create new column with name: create a new column with specified name. Name of the new column can contain spaces or special characters - technical column name will be created automatically. The new column will be placed right after the input column.
