Hello,

How can I remove [ ]  between  a job name?
I try to modify this query, but the result is not correct :
set nocount on; SELECT DISTINCT REPLACE(name, ' [ ] ', '') FROM    msdb..sysjobs"
Thanks

I assume your current job name is something like [job] - if so, try the following:

SELECT DISTINCT REPLACE(REPLACE(name, '[', ''),']','') FROM msdb..sysjobs

Not sure I understand your concern with deleting space. If you're referring to something like [job ] (where ther is a space after job), then just modify the query JEaston provided adding a trim function (i.e. trim(replace(replace(name, '[',''),']',''))
