I frequently run across the issue of rebuilding a client's existing system where they need to concatenate the contact's title, first name, middle name, and last name. However, due to poor data entry sometimes the title and/or middle name are missing, there are extra spaces in the fields, and even carriage returns. Rather than creating a complex conditional statement to check for all possible combinations there is a much easier calculation that gets it right no matter how poorly the data entry has been performed.
