Welcome to our SQL Server blog

This blog was created in order to pass on some of our knowledge and advice in the hope that the community might find it useful.

Obviously Microsoft SQL Server is our area of expertise and therefore this is our most thorough blog with everything from the basic through to the the incredibly advanced and, as such, we should have something for everyone within our pages.

This is a very common function when performing string manipulation… you simply pass in a character or string that you wish SQL to look for, the text in which to look, and what you want the character or string replacing with.

Character replace

declare @text varchar(40)
set @text = 'mom'

select replace(@text, 'm', 'b')

String replace

declare @text varchar(40)
set @text = 'flash'

select replace(@text, 'la', 'i')
