I need to update a table I have in oracle that has an invalid character type in it. It looks like it is a tab character. Can someone give me a script to update this field in the table to remove a tab character from a field and replace it with a space - I assume? Very few rows have this 'bad' data problem - how can I identfy all of them?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Finding the rows:
select * from table where column like ‘%’||chr(9)||’%';

to change the rows
update table
set column = replace(column,chr(9),’ ‘)
where column like ‘%’||chr(9)||’%';
