Changing names in a column of data

Hi all,

I have a column in a set of data that has 10 names in, I would like to change the names in the column without having to create another column. For example I would like to change Insurance to Ins, Pensions to Pens etc.

Is this possible to do?

Thanks.

Use a mapping table

It sounds like these are company names? You could try something like this:

 

Replace(Replace(CompanyName, 'Insurance', 'Ins'), 'Pension', 'Pens')
