I've just started down the road of IDM, and I've run into my first real stumbling block.

I'm trying to pull data into my identity vault from our student records system using a delimited text driver. I have a particular attribute that can potentially contain consecutive spaces that need to be preserved. At some point, as the data makes its way into the system, the records that do have consecutive spaces end up having those consecutive spaces consolidated into a single space.

I have a feeling that this is a very simple problem with a very simple solution, and that I'm just missing a checkbox somewhere.

Any thoughts?
