I actually use the Field Calculator "replace" formula that works very well but I have some '\' caracters in my field that I cannot replace. ex : '\naninana' and I want to keep only 'naninana'.

    shouldn't "\n" be a line break? – Elio Diaz Nov 27 '17 at 19:42

If you want to remove a \ in a field, you can escape it as in:

replace(fieldname, '\\', '')

Or if you wanted to remove \n:

replace(fieldname, '\\n', '')
  • It works with replace(fieldname, '\\', '') ! Thanks a lot @larsks – Cartophyl Nov 27 '17 at 20:06
