Trim values along with the tab

What?
A quick article on how to trim in MySQL along with getting rid of any leading or trailing tab characters.

Why?
I use MS Excel for organizing data and then converting to MySQL commands. Unfortunately, the MS Excel software adds tab characters to delimit the columns...

How?
  1. UPDATE `mytable` SET `myColumn` = TRIM(CHAR(9) FROM TRIM(`myColumn`));

CharIndex Reverse - find occurrence starting from end of string in TSQL
Very helpful thanks! This worked for me as well, and is a little shorter. Not sure if there are drawbacks. SELECT RIGHT(@Haystack,CHARINDEX(@Delimiter,REVERSE(@Haystack))-LEN(@Delimiter))
