To trim extra white space from user input:

Use the [String->Trim] tag. The following example shows how to trim extra white space from the beginning and end of a value returned by [Action_Param: 'First_Name']. The variable First_Name will contain the same value, but without any extraneous spaces or return characters.

[Var: 'First_Name'=(Action_Param: 'First_Name')]
[(Var:'First_Name')->(Trim)]
<br>"[Action_Param: 'First_Name']"
<br>"[Var:'First_Name']"
Result:
<br>"  John  "
