Ok, so here is the issue.
I have a table with some columns and 'subject' is one of the columns. I need to get the first 10 letters from the 'subject' field no matter the 'subject' field contains a string with 100 letters.
Table - tbl. Columns - id, subject, value.
SELECT subject FROM tbl WHERE id ='$id';
The result I am getting is, for example
Hello, this is my subject and how are you
I only require the first 10 characters
I can understand that I can remove the rest of the characters using php substr() but that's not possible in my case. I need to get the excess characters removed by MySQL. How can this be done?
