Hope this helps Just create a test table, as a replica of your original source table, complete the update on there and check results.
You would want to do this as good SQL programming practice to ensure you don't mess up columns that should not be updated.

it should still fix some issue Not easily, though I can thing of two ways to do it:
Write a series of stored procedures that identify all varchar and text columns of all tables, and generate individual update statements for each column of each table of the form "UPDATE foo SET BAR = REPLACE(BAR,'foobar','quux')". This will probably involve a lot of queries against the system tables, with a lot of experimentation -- Microsoft doesn't go out of its way to document this stuff. Export the entire database to a single text file, do a search/replace on that, and then re-import the entire database. Given that you're using MS SQL Server, this is actually the easier approach. Microsoft created the Microsoft SQL Server Database Publishing Wizard for other reasons, but it makes a fine tool for exporting all of the tables of a SQL Server database as a text file containing pure SQL DDL and DML. Run the tool to export all of the tables for a database, edit the resulting file as you need, and then feed the file back to sqlcmd to recreate the database.

will be helpful for those in need You're assuming that strings are mutable. They're not. Calling replace and then ignoring the return value will do nothing useful. You want:
code :
Line = Line.replace(Counterstring, Replace);
for (int counter = 1; counter <= 300; counter++) {
    line = line.replace("1.", "0.");
for (int counter = 1; counter <= 300; counter++) {
    line = line.replace(counter + ".", (counter - 1) + ".");

it fixes the issue You can do this
.replace(/-.*$/, '') will check for -{anything} at the end of the string and replace with nothing.
code :
const strs = [
const newStrs = strs.map(str => str.replace(/-.*$/, ''));
