TUTORIALSPOINT Simply Easy Learning Page 59 8 LENGTHB(x); Returns the length of a character string in bytes for single byte character set. 9 LOWER(x); Converts the letters in x to lowercase and returns that string. 10 LPAD(x, width [, pad_string]) ; Pads x with spaces to left, to bring the total length of the string up to width characters. 11 LTRIM(x [, trim_string]); Trims characters from the left of x. 12 NANVL(x, value); Returns value if x matches the NaN special value (not a number), otherwise x is returned. 13 NLS_INITCAP(x); Same as the INITCAP function except that it can use a different sort method as specified by NLSSORT. 14 NLS_LOWER(x) ; Same as the LOWER function except that it can use a different sort method as specified by NLSSORT. 15 NLS_UPPER(x); Same as the UPPER function except that it can use a different sort method as specified by NLSSORT. 16 NLSSORT(x); Changes the method of sorting the characters. Must be specified before any NLS function; otherwise, the default sort will be used. 17 NVL(x, value); Returns value if x is null; otherwise, x is returned. 18 NVL2(x, value1, value2); Returns value1 if x is not null; if x is null, value2 is returned. 19 REPLACE(x, search_string, replace_string); Searches x for search_string and replaces it with replace_string. 20 RPAD(x, width [, pad_string]); Pads x to the right. 21 RTRIM(x [, trim_string]); Trims x from the right. 22 SOUNDEX(x) ; Returns a string containing the phonetic representation of x. 23 SUBSTR(x, start [, length]); Returns a substring of x that begins at the position specified by start. An optional length for the substring may be supplied. 24 SUBSTRB(x); Same as SUBSTR except the parameters are expressed in bytes instead of characters for the single-byte character systems. 25 TRIM([trim_char FROM) x); Trims characters from the left and right of x. 26 UPPER(x); Converts the letters in x to uppercase and returns that string.
