I am wishing to extract the contents of a column with datatype varchar2(100) which holds concatenated address data with carriage returns so when used within the application the address elements appear on seperate lines.
I wish to replace the carriage return characters with a comma so the address elements are split into individuals fields as part of the extract
How do I
a) search for the carriage return character in the string
b) replace the carriage return character with a comma.
I believe I should be using the chr function but I am not sure how.
Can someone provide any answers or guidance please.
Thank you in anticipation.
just use the replace function.
eee',chr(13),'c') from dual
I have been able to resolve the problem with the expert guidance provided.
I want to see<Enter>
This is so
I expect the count to say "2".
I have two input boxes. The first is the <textarea> where the words are entered with identifier of say "name=textareadata" .
I also have a 2nd inout box where I want the count to be displayed in real time with identifier say "name=counter" . For the <textarea> tag, I also have this "onKeyup=ShowCount()". The <form> tag has identifier say "name=formdata" .
var count = document.formdata.textareadata.value;
count = count.split(chr(13));
document.formdata.counter.value = count.length;
This does not work. I have actually tried other stuff with regexp etc ... with no luck. The real time update works though as I replaced "count.split(chr(13))" with "count.split(" ")" and is successfully shows the exact count as I enter the data. If I remove the data it decreases the counter. But I want to count combinations words count after each carriage return.
I kept trying and finally got it. Here's the code that did the job:
var sTextArea = document.formdata.textareadata.value,
re = /\r\n/g,
aHTMLComments = sTextArea.split(re);
