I have a question.

There is a column named: Shipping Time, and it has a data type of varchar(32)
but when I run a select to see the values of this column, I see that the value is stored as:

sshot

I would like to learn if possible through asking this question,  how to convert, or replace that special character that I have not seen before.

For your help, thank you very much.
