Subj:   Re: Casting to char
From:   Claybourne L. Barrineau


Try this:

Select *
From table
Where substr((trim(stringvarx)),1,4) = '5060'

The 'trim' function will convert integers to characters and remove any leading spaces.

I'm assuming you want the first 4 digits of the integer. In your example below (if you had casted the expression as a character), you would have received only 1 character starting at the 4th position from the left.

Hope this helps,

Claybourne Barrineau
