I am using SQL SERVER 2008,I have to remove last "OR" word from query in SQL SERVER 2008.
my sample query is--select ID from Emp where city='abc' OR pincode=123456 OR 

I am building dynamically query therefore extra OR is coming.

Please help me to remove this extra OR from query using function(SQL SERVER 2008)

You should not add it (the extra OR) to start with...

Simply properly build your query without the final OR when you build it!

Typically, I would recommand you to build your query in C# as it is probably easier to do and also validate the query.

Anyway, remember that you should never build a query from string specified by the user as it open security holes.
string query = "select ID from Emp where city='abc' OR pincode=123456 OR ";
int index = query.LastIndexOf("OR");
if (index >= 0)
   query = query.Substring(0, index);
