HI, I have few records in my table in the below format.


Does the operator wish to apply for the <a href="../public/glossary.htm#TEST" target="_new" id="_glossary">TEST</a> scheme?


I need the above record to appear as  below -

Does the operator wish to apply for the TEST scheme?

Can anyone  give me the TSQL Code to remove this html code
as I just need to get the text part of it.

Many Thanks

Alternatively, using/setting up an ASP/ASP.Net page that will query the table/field strip out the HTML and update the entry.

If you have perl on your system you might be able to use it to do the same task.
