Adding Extra Characters to query output

Hey guys,

I would like to find out how to add text to the starting and/or the end of a column output.....


query example --
SELECT price, category, item_image
FROM table_name

before --
9.99, electronic_item, item_image.jpg

after --
9.99, electronic_item, item_image_90.jpg

What I'm looking for is to have for e.g "_90" suffixed or put in behind of all image records that are produced from the query results..

The end of a string is easy. Select image_name+'_90' from table
The harder part is to insert it before the .jpg. Using left and search it can be done. You can also do replace to replace .jpg with _90.jpg

This query:

SELECT price, category, item_image+'_90'
FROM table_name

will add '_90' to all values in [item_image] field, but if you have the field values to be: 'item_image.jpg', the result would be: 'item_image.jpg_90', which isn't what you want.

What you could do is:

SELECT price, category, replace(item_image, '.jpg', '_90.jpg')
FROM table_name

This is the MySQL way to do it:

SELECT price, category, concat(item_image,'_90')
FROM table_name

The SQL Server / Microsoft Access way
SELECT price, category, item_image+'_90'
FROM table_name 

Open in new window
