Hi geniuses.
I got a report to build and I need data from a field which contains lots of junk data, like:

MNN.helloworld
SSD.goodbyeworld
DDS.seeulaterworld.oops
....

What I really need when there's only 1 '.' in the data.

How do I Where this up?

Thanks
Regards

If you litter your database queries with nolock query hints, are you aware of the side effects?
Try reading a few of these links...

(*) Missing rows with nolock
(*) Allocation order scans with nolock
(*) Consistency issues with nolock
(*) Transient Corruption Errors in SQL Server error log caused by nolock
(*) Dirty reads, read errors, reading rows twice and missing rows with nolock
