Here is what I have,

DECLARE @document varchar(200);
DECLARE @document1 varchar(200);

SELECT @document = '68.33 GB Total, 56.75 GB (83%) Free, 3% Fragmented (7% file fragmentation)'
SELECT @document1 = '137 GB Total, 83.83 GB (61%) Free, 39% Fragmented (78% file fragmentation)'


I need to get how much fragmentation. So in first one its 7 and in other its 78

SELECT substring(@document,charindex('Fragmented',@document,1)+12,2) AS file_fragpct --gives 7%
SELECT substring(@document1,charindex('Fragmented',@document1,1)+12,2) AS file_fragpct--gives 78


but it gives me values= 7% and 78. I only need values. I dont need '%' sign.
I want only one standard query that satisfies my condition.

You can just use replace around what you already have.


replace(substring(f.frag_pct, charindex('Fragmented', f.frag_pct, 1) + 12, 2), '%', '') AS file_fragpct
