Get the last number from the end of a string in T-SQL

If you have several rows in a table with a column containing text like ‘abc_123 / def_234 / ghi_345’, you can retrieve the 345 number with an SQL select like:

select reverse(substring(reverse(‘ghi_345’), 1, charindex(‘_’,
reverse(‘ghi_345’)) – 1))
