Text.Trim over entire table

Hi there,

Does anyone know how to use Text.Trim over an entire table of data? I have many fields which each have a leading and trailing apostrophe, which I want to remove.

 

Regards,

Will

I would look at the Table.TransformColumns and use your Text.Trim within that function as a transform operation.
