Unless I'm missing something, I think the title of this post says it all. There are functions to remove both leading and trailing blanks, blanks on the right, and all blanks including embedded blanks, but if there's something to trim blanks on the left I haven't found it. Yes, I can write one but that's a pain. This is a simple enough function to add to the "trim" suite that I think it really should be there.
Thank you, Scott! I had a dim recollection (all of my recollections are "dim"! ;)), but I forgot that it and @RTrim, unlike @Trim, let you specify what characters are trimmed. It also explains why I wasn't getting the error(s) I really expected to get.
