|Query to delete some characters from a column|
or how to remove parts of a string
I search for an answer but couldnīt find one that work.
I have a column on a table with thousands of lines with values like:
... and so on
And I need to delete everything after -v16-, including the "-v16-".
Is it possible to do that in phpMyAdmin?
see documentation for substring_index function
update your_table set your_field=substring_index(your_field,'-',2)
