Searches a string for a pattern and replaces it with a replacement string.


RegexpReplace(string, pattern, replacement)

string (required): The string to search.
pattern (required): The pattern to extract with.
replacement (required): String to replace the sought pattern.

When the regular expression you want to use contains a slash, quotation or other special character, you will need to use a backslash (\) to escape the special character. Regexp can vary based on the databases. Check the documentation of your database to find the correct syntax.
