MySQL query to delete last two words from every column value

MySQLMySQLi Database

For this, you can use the LEFT() function from MySQL. Let us first create a table −

mysql> create table DemoTable
   -> (
   -> Name varchar(10)
   -> );
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.71 sec)

Insert some records in the table using insert command −

mysql> insert into DemoTable values('John');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.17 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Chris');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.07 sec)
mysql> insert into DemoTable values('Robert');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.11 sec)

Display all records from the table using select statement −

mysql> select *from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+--------+
|  Name  |
+--------+
|  John  |
|  Chris |
| Robert |
+--------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

Here is the query to delete last two words from every column value−

mysql> select left(Name,length(Name)-2) from DemoTable;

This will produce the following output −

+---------------------------+
| left(Name,length(Name)-2) |
+---------------------------+
| Jo                        |
| Chr                       |
| Robe                      |
+---------------------------+
3 rows in set (0.02 sec)
