Hi,

1.) I think the best solution will be a UDF under V2R5.1.

2.) With pure SQL you will get a huge sql-statment with concatenations, index, and substr.

3.) You can write stored procedure like ( pseudo-code ):

     a.) get the information into a cursor

     b.) myvar = ''

     c.) while i < character_length (  ) do
               case when substr( , i, 1 ) between '0' and '9'
                  then myvar = myvar || substr( , i, 1 )
             end
             i = i + 1;
         end /* while */

     d.) update  with myvar.

Christian
