    problem with function TRIM

    gadeyne.bram Master

      Hi,

       

      I'm using teiid 8.9.1

       

      I have a database that contains some columns with multiple values separated with comma . So I'm trying to use a combination of case, substring and trim to split these values into multiple colums.

       

      The following statement part does not work:

       

      case when pos2 = 0 then trim(substring(Description, pos1+1))

      end as bed

       

      TEIID31100 Parsing error: Encountered "+1)[*])[*] end as" at line 3, column 68.

       

      If I add ' ' FROM to the trim statement it does work and returns a correct result.

       

      working statement:

       

      case when pos2 = 0 then trim(' ' FROM substring(Description, pos1+1))

      end as bed

       

      With kind regards

      Bram
