I have a table called "NoPic_Picture_NotAll"
Field called "Material_no" text

In this field I have a list of jpg names...(no actaual pics)

What I need:
I need to delete the ".JPG" FROM Every record in this field.

1a003.jpg
10a255.jpg
3aa34.jpg

So the result would be:
1a003
10a255
3aa34

"update NoPic_Picture_NotAll set Material_no = replace(Material_no,'.jpg','')"

or if you donot want to modify the table and just  display the modified sting in a query use:

replace(Material_no,'.jpg','') as MatNo
