Question Right formula putting in spaces

When I use the formula =right(a1,3) it is returning a number that has an invisible space in front of the 3 digits...is there any way around this without going into the cell to delete the space?

TRIM() will remove the spaces.

=right(trim(a1),3)

What is happening is I will use the formula you provided, but when I copy and paste the values into the column I need it in it is putting the spaces in then

Sounds strange - can you attach an example workbook which demonstrates the problem so I can investigate it?

Please see attached. I used your trim formula starting in A263. The 745s I did manually. If you manually take the space out in front of it, the Division will show up otherwise it won't.
