I am trying to return a string up to a certain character, and cannot figure out what I should be using.  This may be a newbie question...
Basically, a varchar(255) column named COMMENT has the following value:
  'Working on a solution to get this to appear_NOT THIS'

When I select that column I would like the result to be
  'Working on a solution to get this to appear'

So effectively trimming everything to the right of the _ (underscore).

Is that even possible?
