How to get rid of "-" in an registration number? In a query. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have customers using different "standards" for their company registration number.

    Some write it 5566900816 while others will write 556690-0816.
    So always ten number in a row. Or - also always - six numbers to the left of "-" and four to the right

    I my case, when exporting the registration number, I want to be without the "-" if its there. The export is via a query.

    Hi Peter,

    You could use the Replace function:

      registration_number = Replace(registration_number,"-","")

    Imb.
