I have a following string

 INCISE SPINE 3 COLUMN ADL SEGücertified~12/12/2012

ücertified - This thing can be like ücertified, ünoncertified, üpending

so i am trying to remove all characters from right starting from ü

2. Another way i tried using listfirst, tried using a function inside the query like

<cfquery name="GetTitles" DATASOURCE="#dsn#">
  SELECT ArticleID,Title,{fn ListFirst(mystring,'ü')} as mystring
  FROM News
  ORDER BY DatePosted
</cfquery>


also, what if i need to separate this string into 3 different variables, 1 - string , 2 - the status [certified,noncertified, date], 3- date

Use list functions with multiple delimiters:  "ü" and "~"

     <cfset delims = "ü~">
     <cfset theString = getToken( yourString, 1, delims)>
     <cfset theStatus = getToken( yourString, 2, delims)>
     <cfset theDate = getToken( yourString, 3, delims)>

Split it on the "ü" and grab the first part.  But that's what the code above does.  The results would be:

theString = INCISE SPINE 3 COLUMN ADL SEG    <=== everything before the ü
theStatus = certified
theDate = 12/12/2012
