You can use REPALCE function
UPDATE YourTable SET YourColumn = replace (YourColumn, '¿¿¿', 'ext')

Open in new window


This will update any records that is having '¿¿¿' with 'ext'

The question isn't clear.  "¿" usually represents an unknown character. ie Like if there's an encoding problem and some characters can't be translated, they're replaced with "¿" (unknown).

If '¿¿¿' at the end then:
Update table TableName set a = left(a,length(a)-3);

If '¿¿¿' is representing extensions then:
Update table TableName set a = (left(a,length(a)-3)+'ext');
