You cannot put $1 in the 3rd parameter to REGEX_REPLACE -- that parameter is an integer, it can only contain numbers.

Also, the [A-Za-z] would be correct -- these are the characters you wish to replace, and they are to be replaced with a '' (empty string). So the letters would be removed.

Changing it to have a caret in front [^A-Za-z] would do the opposite of what he wants -- it'd remove anything aside from A-Z.

Please take a moment to test out your suggestions before posting them. I understand that it is easy for you to get confused (it happens to everyone), but it's even worse for someone who hasn't done it before, so taking a moment to verify your thoughts before posting can save people a lot of time.

I think what's wrong is probably the last parameter which should be $1 not
just 1.
The other thing is that what you may need is to remove the characters, so
you should put a caret character before a set l[A-za-z]'.
