I am trying to achieve the following by using the SUBSTR function,

I have some data as below,

object 1 is XXX-ABXXXX
object 2 is XXX-ABCDEXXXX
object 3 is XXX-ABCDXX

where x is any number from 0 to 9
Now that I want to extract the the trailing X from the three objects I cannot achieve the desired results owing to the different structure of the three objects.


Can anyone suggest if there is a possibility that I can extract the all the trailing X from the three objects so that none of the X is missing. Maybe some check where the char 'D' ends it should start extracting X until the end.

Pls advice.

Regards
