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

Hi @RamiDaoud ,

 

Is this problem solved?

 

If it is solved, please always accept the replies making sense as solution to your question so that people who may have the same question can get the solution directly.

 

If not, please share us a dummy .pbix file with the same issue. Please remove real data and sensitive information.

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]), " "))

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

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()
