Apologies - sent the wrong snippet earlier. The correct version (very

similar) is;

Here's a small snippet that will replace spaces within quotes using 
regex's.  Just put your data into tString and the new data is put into 

put tString into tResult
repeat while matchText(tString, "([" & quote & "][^" & quote & "]+[" & quote & "])", tMatch)
 put replaceText(tMatch, " ", "") into tReplacement
 put replaceText(tResult, tMatch, tReplacement) into tResult
 put replaceText(tString, tMatch, "") into tString
end repeat

Hope this is of use, JB.
