Greetings,

I have several data sets (from the World Bank Governance indicators) where the names of countries sometimes have one or two asterisks following their names, e.g.:

Afghanistan
Albania**
Armenia
Azerbaijan* 

etc.  I want to get rid of the asterisks to merge them with a master data set.  Aside from editing each name individually, I presume that there is an easier way that I just don't know.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ric Uslaner
