Default trim with ListFolderContents

I have employees placing jpeg files in a specific folder, and I am then using ListFolderContents to simply display those images through the web browser. works like a charm... BUT.... if an employee places a file that has white spaces in the file names, an "X" shows in the broswer.

Can the TRIM variable remove the spaces from the file name before it displays it at the browser level. I am not looking to remove the spaces in the actual file, but just at the browser level?

can this be done??

If you did get rid of the spaces, and if the filenames on the server still had the spaces in them, then the code would *never* work.

Anyway, the TRIM function (no way it is a "variable") only removes spaces at the ENDs of a string, never in the middle. REPLACE() could remove all spaces, but I still question if that is the right answer.

But the big question I have: What "ListFolderContents" component? A quick google finds at least 50 or 60 separate attempts to supply one. If you don't point us to a reference to what you are using, I doubt we can help.
