I want to retrieve value from database if the value has lessthan 5 digits i need to append zeros to make 5 charact or digit using storedprocedure in Sql server 2005.
example, if database has value as "12", my stored procudure should return "00012".
Basically i need to do something like padding left with '0'.

Can you please help me on this.
