I have this statement to pad amounts with zero's and change the dollar amount from negative to positive.

When a check is voided, it is a null amount for the dist_amt.  How do we populate just zero's when the amount is null included in this statement?  Also, if there is a better way to write this entire statement, please advise as well.  Thanks in advance.

RIGHT ('000000000000' + CONVERT (varchar, REPLACE(CONVERT (varchar, dbo.APDISFIL_SQL.dist_amt), '.', '') * - 1), 12)
