Subj:   Re: Adding leading zeros in SQL output
From:   David Hough

Your point about adding an extra column for the sign is well taken, but note that ODBC does just fine with John's example. To clarify:

select number (format '9(9)') from table;

returns a numeric value with formatting. Formatting is ignored by ODBC but works for BTEQ, etc. John's example:

select number (format '9(9)') (char(9)) from table;

works fine everywhere because it returns a character string. The formatting is applied internally by the Teradata during the char conversion.
