Getting 0 padded values in the columns.

Getting 0 padded values in the columns.

Hi All,

I have a requirement to convert a integer to string and display it in
Sql server with fixed length say 3 chars. (in c, we wud use %03d in
printf)

If the number is small say, 9 then it has to be displayed as 009,
56 -> 056, 897-> 897, 6786 -> xxx

Checked through STR and CAST functions, couldn't find any relevant
paramters.

if you have any ideas, please mail me.

Thanks & Regards,
Chandra Mohan

Do:

SELECT CASE WHEN LEN(@n) <= 3
THEN RIGHT('000' + CAST(@n AS VARCHAR), 3)
ELSE 'xxx'
END ;

Hi ,

You could use this :

select replicate('0', 3-datalength(cast(column as varchar(10)))) +
cast (column as varchar(10)) from table
Replace the column and table with the right values and here the
assumption is the column is of int datatype.
