Hi all,

Please find the attachment,

I have a requirement where I need to replace the ISDN values into PRI from the Tag Column
I guess we have something like this select replace([tag_col],'ISDN','PRI') from tablename. this works fine.

I have another requirement where rest of the values in the tag_col should go null/blank.
It means I should have tag_col with 'PRI'  only.

please help out.
thanks in adv

May be you want update items in that table, not select from it?
[telepathy mode = off]
If yes, query will be different

first queries written by ewangoya and parpaa will replace values in tag_col column from ISDN to PRI. All the other row (not ISDN) will remain unchanged.

the last one will set tag_col  = null for all records that are not PRI and not ISDN
