Subj:   Re: Substr question
 
From:   Babu, Mahesh

I don't think you can use a -ve number as outbounds. You can use the following SQL to SUBSTR backward.

     select
     characters(trim('265CPI0')) Chrs,
     '265CPI0' Strng,
      1 offset,
     substr(strng, (chrs - offset) , ( chrs - (chrs - (offset + 1)) ) ) ;

Incrementing the offset value will SUBSTR the string backward. May be you could use a derived table and CROSS JOIN it to automate the offset increment part.


Thanks,

Mahesh
