Finding whitespace in a specific column

By Gaby Abed,

After reading entries regarding whitespace (http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/T-SQL/63953/), I was wondering if there was a quick way to check for any white space in a particular column? These are the ascii equivalents of 0-32 (33 if you want to include a regular SPACE). This procedure simply takes a table and column name and returns the rows (but you can change to return count(*) if you think it will be a lot)
