Over the next few days we are going to start the migration to a new forum application. I'm going to start with high post count and active users. You may receive an invitation to the new forums. It's not spam. It's just me trying to seed the user base. My goal is to open it up over the weekend.

Once we open the site we'll block registrations here. We should be open shortly on the new site.

Are you running into any issues when using charindex and substring? In any case, the following does not use either of those functions:
DECLARE @x VARCHAR(256) = 'http://www.mysite.com/Default.aspx?TabId=330&EntryId=1';
SELECT STUFF(@x,1,PATINDEX('%&EntryId%',@x),'')

I tried the below and it worked.

DECLARE @x VARCHAR(256) = 'http://www.mysite.com/Default.aspx?EntryId = 1&a=1&TabId=330';

--another query string combination
/*DECLARE @x VARCHAR(256) = 'http://www.mysite.comDefault.aspx?TabId=330&EntryId = 1&a=1';*/

SELECT STUFF(@x,1,PATINDEX('%EntryId%',@x)-1,'')
select LTRIM(RTRIM(Replace(REPLACE(SUBSTRING(STUFF(@x,1,PATINDEX('%EntryId%',@x)-1,''),0,
(case when CHARINDEX('&',STUFF(@x,1,PATINDEX('%EntryId%',@x)-1,''),1)=0 then 100 else CHARINDEX('&',STUFF(@x,1,PATINDEX('%EntryId%',@x)-1,''),1) end)
