Tokenise

Post by FRBhote » 17 Sep 2021, 06:53

I have a field with

Z/N/2016062/11

in a table.

What would be the best way to get Z and N through a select statement?

@LEFT( B_REF, @SCAN( B_REF, '/' ) ) give me Z but how to get the N?

@LEFT( B_REF, @SCAN( B_REF, '/' ) ) || @MID( B_REF, @SCAN( B_REF, '/' )+1, 1 )
gives you ZN

Unfortunately the lengths of the first and second tokens is not 1. @LEFT works for the first token, but @MID assumes the length of 1.
