I have a table with the following data

ID      Max Value
1      1.56
2      10.753
3      100.008
4      18.6
5      .4
6      2.47
7      1.49
8      13.65
9      29.68
10      37.22

I want to select all records, but have Max Value displayed like 000.000.

For Example

ID      Max Value
1      001.560
2      010.753
3      100.008
4      018.600
5      000.400
6      002.470
7      001.490
8      013.650
9      029.680
10      037.220

Any help is appreciated

>I want to select all records, but have Max Value displayed like 000.000.
The below code block works, but couple of things you'll have to work out...
What's the data type of MaxValue?  If something other then numeric(?, 3) then you'll have to handle the three decimal points in the query by using CAST(? as numeric(?,3) in the inside of MaxValue
How to handle values 1,000 or greater, or negative numbers?
IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#tmp') IS NOT NULL
	DROP TABLE #tmp
GO

CREATE TABLE #tmp (id int, MaxValue numeric(19,3))

INSERT INTO #tmp (id, MaxValue) 
VALUES
(1,1.56), (2,10.753), (3,100.008), (4,18.6), (5,.4), 
(6,2.47), (7,1.49), (8,13.65), (9,29.68), (10,37.22)

SELECT id, RIGHT('00' + CAST(MaxValue as varchar(100)),7)
FROM #tmp
