How do I take the following statement...

select glg_budg_dtl.gl_bud_idx,  glg_budg_dtl.gl_bud_cd from glg_budg_dtl

Result  
1,TR
2,BD

and make it return

01, TR
02,BD

basically changing the first returned field from a number to text and prepending a "0"
All values are below 10

What would you expect the output to look like when your "value" column reached 10?

Would it be 10, or 010?

Same question for 100?  If your values pass 100, would you expect the output to look like this?

001, 002, 003.

Thanks!

select '0' + cast(isnull(glg_budg_dtl.gl_bud_idx, 0) as varchar) as gl_bud_idx,  glg_budg_dtl.gl_bud_cd 
from glg_budg_dtl
