I have a table with a field called 'Website'

Some of the info is entered like this:  google.com

Some of it like this:  www.google.com

and Some like this: http://www..google.com

How can I parse all the fields so that all the records will all show the domain.com only, erasing  the rest?

Thanks

Try:
UPDATE `tblWebsite` SET `Website`= SUBSTRING(`Website`,8) WHERE SUBSTRING(`Website`,1,7)='http://'

Open in new window

followed by
UPDATE `tblWebsite` SET `Website`= SUBSTRING(`Website`,5) WHERE SUBSTRING(`Website`,1,4)='www.'

Open in new window

Note that not all websites are configured to work without www.
