What about this function (assuming you use mysql)? Use ' ' as the delimiter. You would probably need another function to count the number of words. Why don't you use php to do this - surely it's easier?SUBSTRING_INDEX(str,delim,count)Returns the substring from string str before count occurrences of the delimiter delim. If count is positive, everything to the left of the final delimiter (counting from the left) is returned. If count is negative, everything to the right of the final delimiter (counting from the right) is returned. mysql> SELECT SUBSTRING_INDEX('www.mysql.com', '.', 2); -> 'www.mysql'mysql> SELECT SUBSTRING_INDEX('www.mysql.com', '.', -2); -> 'mysql.com'This function is multi-byte safe.
