Replace in SQL

I have a column which is bringing in some field values in between crotchets or square brackets [ ] and also in between inverted commas " " BUT not all values come through like this.

 

I am trying to write a SQL to drop the [ ] and " " in the front and back of the values.

 

im using  REPLACE(REPLACE(`COLUMN NAME`, '[', ' '), ']', ' ');

 

But it isnt working. 

 

Can anyone assist?

Re: Replace in SQL

The use of the Substring function might be of better use here. Here a link to the Knowledge Base article for the correct syntax of the function: https://knowledge.domo.com/Prepare/DataFlow_Tips_and_Tricks/Pulling_a_Segment_of_Text_from_a_Text_St...

 

You can also use the Replace Text tile in the Magic ETL if you want to go about it a way other than SQL. 

 

Let me know if either of these work for you!

Re: Replace in SQL

replace(replace(replace(`columname`,'[',''),']',''),'"','')

 

This should replace [ ] and " accordingly.
