Hi Guys

I have a field called Account.

It consits of the following sample data.

0090
>100
0091
0092

I need a script that will strip the leading zero of the 0090 data and the another to add a zero to the back.

So in the end, the sample data will look like this (With the >100 data not being affected.

0900
>100
0910
0920

Thanking you in Advance.

Andre

Hi Again

Further to this I have also tried the following

UPDATE tablename
SET column = Ltrim(column,'0');

But i get this when I parse

Msg 174, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
The ltrim function requires 1 argument(s).

Any ideas?
