Delete a letter from my data via a query in MS Access

LillyC used Ask the Experts™

I would like to create a query to delete the letter F from my data, so that I am just left with the figures minus the F. Eg, 11/2F would become 11/2.

The F only appears in some of the data, the length can vary between 3 and 5 characters and the F always appears at the end.

Any ideas?

Update table1 set Field1 =  Left(Field1, Len(Field1)-1) where Field1 like '%F'

What this will do is remove "F" from Field1 where ever Field1 has data that ends with "F"
