Reply with quote

I have few junk records in a DB2 table.
one field, Emp No has 14 characters size.
This field has few records(almost 100 records) in that table which are junk records. The junk records are like: MSKU1851295ááá, MRKU7998390 á.

So I want to remove these junk characters from these records.
I can able to fetch these records thru a SQL query. But my intention is to remove these junk characters from these records. After changes, these above records should be: MSKU1851295, MRKU7998390.
How to do this in a better way?
Thanks in advance

If the junk character is same.

you can use replace or translate function.

Code:
 select 'MSKU1851295ááá' , replace('MSKU1851295ááá','á', '') , translate('MSKU1851295ááá','', 'á')
 from sysibm.sysdummy1;
