The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

You mean SUBSTRING on each character? You think that's better?

the source values will generally be short (column names) with few (if any) STUFFs

 
It would be if you were dealing with lots of string operations, but since you won't be then you are right to KISS. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
