Hi everyone,
I create a table with tariff... The tariff number is withe following structure:
0101 10
0101 10 100 0
0101 10 900 0
0101 90
The field is set as varchar since a lot of  tariff numbers has 0 in front...
I need to create function  for search the table and to ignore the empty space...
Thank you in advance,
Andreja

You don't need a function. A simple expression works:
where replace('0101 10 100 0', ' ', '') = replace(tariff, ' ', '')

you can use replace function clause to ignore the space character ' '

this will replace the space with normal string and can perform the search as if there was no space ie., ' ' space character can get replaced with '' non-space character

select replace('0101 10',' ','')
GO

look out here for few examples and syntax

TX Wasin & QLemo, to remove the space is not a problem.
but I cannot change the tariff number... So a query or function for searching among tariff numbers without changing them... That's what I need...
Best,
Andreja

That is exactly what I showed - you can do anything in the where clause.
