Got this error...on execution.
Msg 280, Level 16, State 0, Line 1
Only text, ntext, and image columns are valid with the TEXTPTR function.
sdounds like you are trying to use this against a varchar or varchar(max) column?
the regular REPLACE command works fine on varchar(max) columns, so there's no need for this procedure any more;
if you can post the definition of the table/column you are trying to find/replace, I can point out the issue.
