Reg Exp Help

Recommended Posts

DjDeep00

Can anyone help me return only the state from the following using the REGEXP_SUBSTR function in oracle?

Data:

NEWTON FALLS OHIO 44444-9416

CAPE CORAL FL 33914-6428

This is what I have:

SELECT REGEXP_SUBSTR('CAPE CORAL FL 33914-6428',
'+ [^-]+ ')
FROM DUAL;

hmm, no idea how Oracle works. You do know this is an AutoIT forum right?

If you were using AutoIT, this expression would work:

\s(\w+)\s\d
