Remove file extension in SQL

I have a table containing product image file names.  I need to add '_small' to each file name to display the thumbnail.  I need to do this in the query, any ideas.

Hi Orroland,

UPDATE tblName SET tblName.fldName = tblName.FldName & "_small";

Kind regards,
create a new field and run an update query ...

left$(instr([imagefieldname],"."-1)) & "_small.jpg"


Sorry, - I didn't see this part:

Original file: image.jpg

New file: image_small.jpg

UPDATE tblName SET tblName.fldName = left(tblName.FldName,len(tblName.FldName)-4) & "_small" & ".jpg";

Replace tblName and fldName in accordance with your table.
