Delete Line feeds in a column's data

Dear friends, how are you?

My question is this: I want to append two tables that have the same structures, but one column, specifically the Metric column, has an annoying "character" that apparently are line feeds that I don't know how to modify.

For example: I have the metric column of the Bolivia table and I see the following:

Then the Chile column:

MatiasBI1986_1-1709298514425.png

How could I homologate them so that they have the same detail in such a way that when it comes to making the FILTERS with DAX, I don't have that inconvenience that I have a Value (List USD) or Units for Chile and another for Bolivia?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards!

Here is some DAX code to do it in a calculated column or you could do something similar in PowerQuery

 

ColumnA = TRIM( SUBSTITUTE( RawColumn, UNICHAR(10), "" ) )

Excellent! Your answer helped me a lot

Here's how I adapted your formula for my case:

Z_Métrica_Final = TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(TOTAL[Metric], UNICHAR(10), "" ) )
