    hi

    you can get the first and last letter same time in a single column.
    i will give one query u go through it


    select to_char(substr(QWF_WARRANTY_TYPE_CD,0,1)||substr(QWF_WARRANTY_TYPE_CD,8,9)) from qa_warranty_fir
    where QWF_FIR_JOBCARD_ID=1017


    by using this we can get the first and last name in a single column.

    if wrong pls reply me.

    Hi

    u can get the first and last letter from a column by using :
    Select substr(,1,1)||substr(,length(),1) from

    Mutating tAble Error will come mainly in the TRiggers /
    When ever the Table data is manipulating is not yet commited ( like update / delete/ insert) , at the same time if u are trying to access the table data
    then you will get the Mutating table error.

    hi friends
    we never got a confirmation from ramesh that could he solve the above problem
    however in oracle if you want the first and the last letter from ename of emp
    then we can use the following syntax
    SELECT SUBSTR(ENAME,1,1)||SUBSTR(ENAME,-1,1) AS [ALIAS]
    FROM EMP;
