    The replace function also needs an input string

    Maybe something like this:
    Code:
    UPDATE Customers SET Customers.Cellular = Replace(Customers.Cellular, '-', '')

    Why are you asking a question that is 100% about SQL in the VB.NET forum? This site has a Database Development forum. That's where SQL questions belong.
