Remove Apartment Number from Address Field

Remove Apartment Number from Address Field

Remove Apartment Number from Address Field

CR 14
SQL Server

I'm working with street addresses.

Need to remove apartment numbers if one exists. # precedes an apartment number. example: N MAIN ST #A

I need to remove # and everything afterwards. My formula removes #, but I'm not sure how to get rid of what's to its right.

if {vw_locations.street_name} like "*#*" then replace({vw_locations.street_name},"#","")


RE: Remove Apartment Number from Address Field


If “#” in {vw_locations.street_name} then
Trim(Split({vw_locations.street_name},”#”)[1]) else

Be sure to replace my quote marks with your own if you copy this.


RE: Remove Apartment Number from Address Field
