Remove only TRAILING Whitespace?

Hi all,
I'm having difficulty with some strings of varying 'meaningful' length from a different database (not under my control) that I am trying to trim in my vb.net code.

I only want to remove TRAILING whitespace... therefore, I can't really use .trim method.

The reasoning behind this being that the field sent from the french database usefully uses a <space> to represent a 0 (as you do). :apologetic:

The string is always the same length but the meaningful length can vary, an example being 95WO<space>5CA<space><space><space>...etc

Or it could be this...

<space><space>WO<space><space><space>... etc

Or this...

<space>5WO95CA<space><space><space>...etc

I've got my methods in place to split the string into pairs and perform various lookups but until I can remove the trailing whitespace I'm a bit stuck :apologetic:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
