Dear Experts,

How can I convert an Integer Column into a fix Char Column like as follows:

Integer Column                         Char (7) Column
7    -----                                   0000007
8                                             0000008
9                                             0000009
10                                           0000010
100                                         0000100

That's right. I've been trying to settle it using Char(7) and LEFT function.

Thanks you saved me hours.
