Need help on Type casting and removing of leading and trailing Zeros for amount column(Decimal) in DB2

Need help on Type casting and removing of leading and trailing Zeros for amount column(Decimal) in DB2.

select cast(amount as VARCHAR(4000 OCTETS)) from schemaname.tablename where pay_id=1038 with ur ;

Casting function is not removing the trailing zeros.

Can you please suggest how to remove the leading and trailing zeros.

Thanks in advance!!!

Please try BIGINT

select CAST(cast(amount as VARCHAR(4000 OCTETS)) AS BIGINT) from schemaname.tablename where pay_id=1038 with ur ;

or this -

select replace(replace(rtrim(ltrim(replace(char(amount), '0', ' '))), ' ', '0'), '.', '') from schemaname.tablename where pay_id=1038 with ur ;
