If I have an email address xxx.yyy@xxx.com, how do I use the SQL string functions to return the first part of the email address before the @. (xxx.yyy). Its not enough to use left() as the email address can vary in length.

Try:

Select Left(myEmailAddress, Patindex('%@%', myEmailAddress) -1) From myTable

This scriptlet will fail if the @ is missing from an email address
