Hi,

I need to REPLACE/UPDATE a partial string 'PQ' to 'QC' in a column (VARCHAR type) using SQL query. Please find following example for better understanding.

Example:
COLUMN VALUE UPADATE STRING
1000ABPQ 1000ABQC
XCPQJK XCQCJK
PQ QC

Please tell me the best way to do this...

Thanks & Regards,
Mallik

Hi!

I think you need to use COBOL with this.
You can SELECT all rows containing 'PQ' with a
COL = *PQ*.

Then you can Do a fetch of all rows containing columns
with PQ. Then you can do an INSPECT REPLACING ALL 'PQ' BY 'QC'.
Then you can UPDATE the replaced value into the table as you fetch
each row.

All in all you SELECT, FETCH, INSPECT, UPDATE each row that contains
the string 'PQ' to replace it with 'QC'.


Regards.
