Hi,
I want to find index of a character which same with one of following characters:
* # ~ !


So I should use this:

patindex ('%[*#~!]%', string_value)

That's okay but for this list: [ ] ^ _ %
I have problem.

patindex ('%[[]^_%]%', string_value) <<<=== WRONG

see

SELECT *
FROM
(
SELECT '[ ] ^ _ %' AS string_value UNION ALL
SELECT '[ ] ^ _ %anjhd' UNION ALL
SELECT 'jkhjkhnb[ ] ^ _ %' UNION ALL
SELECT 'hjjhgjhg[ ] ^ _ %anjhd' 
)t
WHERE patindex ('%[[ ]] ^ _ [%]', string_value) >0


output
--------------------------------------
string_value
--------------------------------------
[ ] ^ _ %
jkhjkhnb[ ] ^ _ %

another way using ESCAPE


SELECT *
FROM
(
SELECT '[ ] ^ _ %' AS string_value UNION ALL
SELECT '[ ] ^ _ %anjhd' UNION ALL
SELECT 'jkhjkhnb[ ] ^ _ %' UNION ALL
SELECT 'jkhjkhnb[ ][ ^ _ %' UNION ALL
SELECT 'hjjhgjhg[ ] ^ _ %anjhd' 
)t
WHERE string_value LIKE '%|[ ] ^ _ |%' ESCAPE '|'


output
-------------------------------
string_value
-------------------------------
[ ] ^ _ %
jkhjkhnb[ ] ^ _ %

logically same with this:

select (select min(v) 
          from
                (
                     select patindex('%[[]%',data) union 
                     select patindex('%]%', data) union
                     select patindex('%[%]%', data)
               )d(v)
          where v > 0
        ) as ix
from
(
values ('asdfd[ ][][')
)t(data)

do you mean this?


SELECT *
FROM 
(
SELECT 'wrwrwewe%anjhd' AS string_value UNION ALL
SELECT 'jkhjkhnb[ ]m,n,m' UNION ALL
SELECT 'jkhjkhnb' UNION ALL
SELECT 'hjjhg_jhg^' UNION ALL
SELECT 'jhgjg$yutuu'
)t
WHERE string_value LIKE '%[$[ $]$^_$%]%' ESCAPE '$'

output
----------------------------
string_value
----------------------------
wrwrwewe%anjhd
jkhjkhnb[ ]m,n,m
hjjhg_jhg^
