Hi all

I am trying to remove spaces from a string using model builder in ArcCatalog and I wrote the following in the Calculate Field, field experssion:  !W.TCIS_GIS.PREM_TYPE!.strip()

It shows the following error message:

Executing (Calculate Field): CalculateField PremisePoints_Layer PremisePoints.PREMTYPE " !WASD.TCIS_GIS.PREM_TYPE!.strip() " PYTHON # PremisePoints_Layer
