I have the following code that will give me the sum of the last hours worked in a 12 month period.
(SELECT sum(prt.hours)
       FROM prod.prtime prt
       WHERE prt.tr_date BETWEEN TRUNC (ADD_MONTHS (SYSDATE, -13), 'MM')  
       AND TRUNC (LAST_DAY (ADD_MONTHS (SYSDATE, -1))+1) ) HOURS_WORKED

I need to have the Hours Worked field formatted to 6 spaces.
I don't need the decimal values, but still need everything to be a total of 6 spaces.

Currently, I'm getting values like:
1961.61
1984
1762.1
672
80

I need to have the results look like:
1961
1984
1762
672
