How to disable automatic TRIM?

My question is very simple - how to disable an automatic trim in script?

For example - when I have in my SQL table in two rows such data: "12345" and " 12345" (in second variant there is a space before the number) - all I have in Qlik in both rows - is "12345". Whether I use text(Field) or just a Field - any way Qlik trims spaces.

How to disable it?

There's a special variable for it, "Verbatim".

SET Verbatim = 1; // This stops the auto trim for anything following it in the script
SET Verbatim = 0; // This restarts the auto trim for anything following it in the script
