Help with FUNCTION


Recommended Posts

I need to create a function that has a VARCHAR as a parameter and checks to see if there is a match of that VARCHAR to a VARCHAR in a table. However, the VARCHAR is a phone number and I am supposed to have my function accept strings like '555-555-5555' and '555.555.5555' and '(555) 555-5555' when the number in the table has the format '5555555555'. Therefore, how can I use REGEXP or some other function or algorithm in mySQL that can handle the extra characters? Is it even possible to use REGEXP in this case? Thank you
