I am trying to use the REPLACE function with no success. I have a Column name "Stage". In the column I need to find the value "Closed Won" and replace it with the value of "Awarded".

I've tried variations of this statement but this is the jist of it.

REPLACE("Closed Won","Closed Won","Awarded")

It stops with the following erorr which has proven to be little help.

[Execute SQL Task] Error: Executing the query "REPLACE("Closed Won","Closed Won","Awarded")" failed with the following error: "Incorrect syntax near 'Closed Won'.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Mack,

Thank you for the reponse. I used the statement and it returned the following.

[Execute SQL Task] Error: Executing the query "REPLACE(Stage,'Closed Won','Awarded')" failed with the following error: "Incorrect syntax near 'Stage'.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

REPLACE ( string_expression , string_pattern , string_replacement )


SELECT REPLACE ( 'closed won' , 'closed won', 'award')


the string_expression can be a column, variable, or string.

Your SQL statement needs to be a proper statement ie

Select REPLACE(Stage,'Closed Won','Awarded')
from your_table

What are you trying to do? An update? Assign a variable?

The REPLACE statement doesn't update the table for you. All it does is return the first expression but with any occurrence of the second expression replaced by the third expression. If you want to update your table then you need to put your REPLACE statement into an UPDATE statement.

Hi,

I was able to get it to run with out error using calvo's statement and also Mack's statement. The only issue is that the value of Closed Won is not being replaced with Awarded.

What do you want the SQL task to do? Update the column?

If so the SQL needs to be

Update table_name
Set stage = REPLACE(Stage,'Closed Won','Awarded')
