Default how to remove spaces in a table

When I cut and paste a table from excel and then want to size the columns to
fit into word, i cant get rid of spaces and the table gets messy when i
change columns. is there an easier way then to go and remove spaces cell by
cell on the table?

Default how to remove spaces in a table

If the spaces are at the start or end of the text within the cell, or on
their own, then click the Centre icon (Ctrl+E) then press the Left (Ctrl+L)
or Right (Ctrl+R), or any combination, this will remove any superfluous
spaces/tabs from the table cells, as well as for any text in a Word document.
If you are working on a Word table ensure that you do not have the entire
table selected, as all you will do is Centre and Left/Right to whole table,
and not get rid of the spaces/tabs. I tend to select muliple Columns but not
the last one, do the trick, then select the last column, repeat (just to
ensure my table stays where I want it).
Hope this helps
