Changing a string of text in QGIS

by Matt Sully   Last Updated September 13, 2017 14:22 PM

I have some text in a column in QGIS, I am using field calculator, I need to replace it with some other text.

This is what I have so far:

replace("url", 'Y:\Natural Environment Record\', '')

It doesn't seem to like this, any ideas? This goes along side the answer to my last query getting spaces removed and to include them as %20 (Réf. Inserting %20 instead of a space as a string)

You can use the following:

replace("url", 'Y:\\Natural Environment Record\\', '')
