Database cleanup

Recommended Posts

I have a database/table that has 1 field \'name\'

I want the names to be unique, the table has a bunch of Duplicate entries in that the names are the same but there is a space ( or some other hidden char) after some so they seem to look different to the table.

 

What I am attempting to do is read the field and use $curname = trim($row_emails[\'name\']) to strip any possible spaces, tabs etc.. and store them in the variable $curname to move them to another table.

 

The problem I am having is INSERTING them to an identical (Empty) table, how would I go about this?
