| Is it possible to replace a string value that uses a wildcard? For example, I'm trying to update a field on a table and replace the field value where it starts with a specific two character pattern and remove it from the string. The field is a delimited string and I want to replace any occurrence of ;A0% or ;A0* with a null value. I don't want to replace the entire field with a null value.
Let's say my field value is this:
;00236;08231;06106 Washington DC;06106 CCA Wash DC;05120;A0106;
I want the result to be this:
;00236;08231;06106 Washington DC;06106 CCA Wash DC;05120;
I was trying several variations:
UPDATE myTable SET myField = REPLACE(myField,'XX%','')
Any help is appreciated.
