I would like to check whether a field has special characters, remove those characters and output (save) the value to another field.
I am creating a user search function that search various fields, but those fields might (or might not) have special characters in them that will return unexpected results, or no results at all. I need to be able to remove any special characters and save/output the clean value to another field, which I will then include in my search function.
G-P's Bargain Shop
After removing special characters:
GPs Bargin Shop
Then save new value (GPs Bargain Shop) to another field
Can someone tell me how to achieve this? Or of a better solution for what Im trying to accomplish. Thanks for any help with this.
