Check REPLACE, TRANSLATE or REGEXP_REPLACE.

Welcome to the forum.

The fact that you are a beginner is irrelevant to what you are asking. If I understand you correctly, you are following some kind of education in Oracle. For this, you got the assignment for which you seek help here.
Normally in education, assignments are meant to bring into practice what you just learned.
So, this leads me to believe that you did not really pay attention during class, or did not read the required parts of the textbook, but skipped right to the assignments.
This way, you will never ever learn anything important about Oracle.

thank you ebrian, i have done it by my own way anyhow thank you loots

frank, actually this is not a thing that i m not paying attention, my mean to ask that; lets take an example of this query, my frnd ebrian said to use replace and translate function and i have done it by just to use instr function only. Every person has its own logic and i want to learn maximum logic.

you are cent percent right that we have to do our assignments by ourself

i hope u get my perspective

In your initial post you clearly stated that you were stuck, not that you were looking for alternatives for something you already know.
First try to get the job(/assignment) done with stuff you learned. Don't try to get ahead or use more if you don't master that.

This is meant as a good advice. SQL is hard enough to learn in the beginning as it is, so try to stick with what you have to do. Plenty of time to look around once you master the basics.
