Got a need to strip out trailing HEX code '0a0d ' from the end of a string orders.notes. orders.notes is a text field and contains lots of trailing  carage returns and line feeds. I do need to preserve the Carrage returns and line feed that are within the text.
THis file and fields are fixed LENGTH
I would like the orders.notes to be 255 chars in lenghth padded with trailing spaces or 0 but not  hex.
$query_rsOrders = "SELECT CONCAT( LPAD(orders.orderid, 11, '0' ), RPAD(orders.notes,225, ' '), RPAD(orders.company, 100, '0')) FROM orders,
order_details WHERE orders.orderid = order_details.orderid ORDER BY orders.orderid INTO OUTFILE '/home/WEB/ORDERTXT'  FIELDS TERMINATED BY '' LINES TERMINATED BY '' ";

Thanks in advance.

Try select left(orders.notes, length(orders.notes)-2) from orders

0xa0xd are 2 bytes/characters and should get stripped from the end of the string orders.notes.

You can put the above statement in a while loop in your PHP code and strip all the 0a0d from the file till you do not have any more trailing 0a0d
