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:

brazili-world-v16-001
europea-beati-v16-002
america-lands-v16-003
jamaica-miste-v16-004
... 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
[dev.mysql.com...]

select substring_index(your_field,'-',2)
from your_table

update your_table set your_field=substring_index(your_field,'-',2)
