Why NOLOCK???


Sean,

At my work i used to specify "NOLOCK" at the end of select statement.Hence, by habit i mentioned there.You can take out that.
And i checked your query.
Only this is statement is working.
REPLACE(SUBSTRING(SEmail_Addr,1,CHARINDEX('@',SEmail_Addr)),'@','').

For other two got this error.
Error : Invalid length parameter passed to the LEFT or SUBSTRING function.

I would suggest that is a habit you learn to break unless you fully understand all the nasty stuff that hint brings to the table.

That's odd. The code I posted works perfectly. Now if you have email values that don't have an @ it would not work where the find code you posted does. I merely posted a couple of alternative ways. In now way did I mean that your fine code was not sufficient. In fact, I had yours in my list of possibilities.

Thanks for the links and your query is working perfectly.

Thanks.
