I am trying to find a way to add some numbers to a column of data in MS SQL 2005. I am not sure if this is possible in MS SQL, but below is what I am trying to do -

UPDATE Table
SET column_name=CONCATENATE('00',column_name);

Any suggestions on how to do this are greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Kristofer

Is the column of type varchar() or char or text?
If so, it can be done this way:

update table set column_name = '00' + columnname
