    Not sure if this is more elegant, but this is one more way you can try.

    Code:
    sql> select * from testip;
    
    IPCOL
    --------------------------------------------------
    199.171.216.254:22808
    199.171.216.255:22808
    199.171.216.256:22808
    199.171.216.257:22808
    
    Elapsed: 00:00:00.15
    sql> select substr(ipcol, 1, instr(ipcol, ':', 1, 1) - 1 ) from testip;
    
    SUBSTR(IPCOL,1,INSTR(IPCOL,':',1,1)-1)
    --------------------------------------------------
    199.171.216.254
    199.171.216.255
    199.171.216.256
    199.171.216.257
    
    Elapsed: 00:00:00.16
    sql> update testip set ipcol = substr(ipcol, 1, instr(ipcol, ':', 1, 1) - 1 ) ;
    
    4 rows updated.

    Better - in what context?
