db2 convert TIME to string 'HH24MISS'

db2 convert time to string
Hi I want to convert a time files (NOT Date, NOR timestamp) to a string representation with the format: 'HH24MISS'

I've tried:
1. TO_CHAR(mytime, 'HH24MISS')
3. SUBSTR(LPAD(mytime, 6, '0'), 1, 2) ...

None of it worked
Many thanks for your support

What is it that you mean by 'a time files'. Can you be more specific?

Hi mruff,

What version of DB2 are you running?  And what's the underlying server?
Kent OlsenDBACommented:
Well, in UDB this works just fine:

  replace (cast (mytime as varchar(10)), ':', '')
