Remove White Spaces between decimal digits

Hello, I have Latitude column with Decimal type and there are some spaces between the digits. My question is how I can remove the spaces? .  I tried trim function which required changing the type from Decimal to Text and when I changed the type I have strange values.

The following explain the case: Thank 

Latitude(Current)Latitude (After cleaning)
32.  5674432.56744
  32. 56 47232.56472
3 2.1  2   36032.12360

Hello,

Unfortunatly, the problem has not been solved yet. I will share the file soon. 

Thanks,

@RamiDaoud , as @Jimmy801 mentioned, embedded Text.From() function will do the trick,

Table.AddColumn(Source, "Custom", each Text.Remove(Text.From([Latitude]), " "))

Hi, @RamiDaoud , Text.Remove does the trick for you.

Table.AddColumn(Source, "Custom", each Text.Remove([Latitude], " "))

I tried it but I recived the follwoing error: 

Expression.Error: The value isn't a single-character string.

Thank you

Hello @RamiDaoud 

 

are you sure the second parameter is a " " and not a string with 2 characters?

Thank you for your comment I modified it based on your comment. However, I recived the following error:

 

Expression.Error: We cannot convert the value 32.346477999999998 to type Text.
Details:
Value=32.346478
Type=[Type]

Hello

Then surround your column reference with Text.From()
