Use DIGITS, not CHAR. Rob Berendt ================== "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin "Steve McKay" <Steve.McKay@SouthT To: firstname.lastname@example.org rust.com> cc: Sent by: Fax to: midrange-l-admin@mi Subject: SQL question drange.com 12/03/2001 10:56 AM Please respond to midrange-l O wise and knowledgeable List - I have a file with a 5 digit numeric field. I need to use SQL to populate a 5 character field. I am currently using the following SQL statement to populate the character field - "UPDATE library/file SET character-field = char(numeric-field)". This works well but I need to have leading zeros displayed if the numeric field is less than 10000 (I.E. numeric 500 should appear in the character field as '00500'). Is there a way to do this using SQL?
