Hi, I am trying to add right padding zeros to my decimal values but I get stuck.

So far I can add left padding zeros and remove the dcimal point,
the issue is that when I get a value of 2.43 then I can convert it to 000243 but if its 2.4 then the converision is to 000024. I need to modify the query so I can have such result:
000243
000240
etc..

 
SELECT RIGHT('0000000000' + CONVERT(VARCHAR,REPLACE([CustFinTrxnNetAmt], '.', '')), 10)  FROM [Transactions]

first, convert to varchar, then remove comma, finally left pad:
SELECT RIGHT('0000000000' + REPLACE( CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), CONVERT(DECIMAL(20,4), [CustFinTrxnNetAmt])) , '.', '') , 10)  FROM [Transactions]
