Gurus,

I'm noticing a tab in the column when converting a varchar2 field to currency. I'm using the TO_CHAR function to do this.

Select Distinct to_char(Prsprsc/100/2,0'999.99')
From Kat,Kav,Kvt,pro,art,aez,prs
Where
Kavkatkeyi = Katkeyi And
Artkeyi  = Aezartkeyi And
Prokeyi = Aezprokeyi And
Artkavkeyi = Kavkeyi And
Artkeyi = Prsartkeyi And
prskavkeyi = artkavkeyi and
prokatkeyi = katkeyi and
Kvtkeyi = Kavkvtkeyi And
Katpf7c = 'Jewel' And
(Artvf5c Like '%Deli%' Or Artvf10c Like '%DELI%') And
Prsvf15c = 'lb.' And
Kvtbezc In ('CHGO-78CA','DKLB-78CC','BNRM-78CE')
and artkeyi = 163245;

Returns
prsprsc = '   5.00'

Should Return
prsprsc = '5.00'

 
Seems simple enough but I'm obviously doing something wrong.

Help?

actually that's a space reserved for the sign in case your number is negative


try this

to_char(Prsprsc/100/2,'fm999.00')
