I am trying to write my first SQL UDF converting a numeric value that is 8.0
to an alpha value that is 7 long right justified with no leading zeros.
The code currently used to tie files together in RPG is:
EvalR Work7 = %EditC(AiOrder:'Z')
In SQL I am using:
Substr(Space(7), 1, 7 - Length(Trim(Char(AiOrder)))) Concat
I tried creating a UDF to accomplish the above to shorten internal SQL Code.
Obviously I am doing something wrong. The Function does get created but
when I try to run, all I get is null values.
Create function CharOrder
returns null on null input
declare numb dec(8);
declare alpha char(7);
set alpha =
Substr(Space(7), 1, 7 - Length(Trim(Char(numb)))) Concat
