Remove Leading Spaces in MS Excel

Many times =Trim(Text) and =Trim(Clean(Text)) does not work in MS Excel to remove and clean leading spaces created due to non-breaking space (Char(160)) specially if you are copying data from web or bullet list in MS Word into an Excel Worksheet.

This problem can be resolved by :

=TRIM(CLEAN(SUBSTITUTE(Old Text,CHAR(160)," ")))
