sql statement .. select part of a field?

Recommended Posts

Hello,


I have a colum in a table that is an id .. and I have a prefix of "999" on the id (I know this wasn't the best table structure .. but I am retrofitting something.)

for example id 1 looks like
9991
id 2 looks like
9992

etc ..

I would like to select this column but just the characters after the first "999" which would be 1,2,etc


something like select id(after 3 chars) from mytable

thanks
n8w

MySql SUBSTRING function. Similar to php substr except first position is 1 in MySql

[code]SELECT SUBSTRING(id, 4) as id FROM mytablename[/code]
