    Unanswered: Need help with using REGEXP in my SELECT statement

    I have a field that contains a list of numbers seperated by commas.

    For example, my field would contain something like this:

    I only want to search for the very last item in the list. In this case it would be 16. My current SELECT looks like this:

    SELECT * FROM `table` where `column` REGEXP ',[[:<:]]16[[:>:]]$'

    It returns no records. Whats wrong with my SELECT?

    use the SUBSTRING_INDEX function for this, with -1 to designate the last item in the list | @rudydotca
