SQL Query

Say I have a column that has this info:

Column Name
1101 - 512123
1101 - 123456
1101 - 410000
1101 - 415800

How do I write a where clause that give me info for all the rows that have 1101 - 4*****

Assuming a space on both sides of the dash...
SELECT ColumnName
FROM YourTable
WHERE LEFT(ColumnName, 8) = '1101 - 4'

Np spaces

In that case, use the below.  If it's slightly different, then change the '1101-4' to whatever you're dealing with, count the number of characters, and change the 6 to that number of characters.
SELECT ColumnName
FROM YourTable
WHERE LEFT(ColumnName, 6) = '1101-4'

Open in new window
