Can someone, please, please help me here; I am very, very confused.

I am grabbing ssn values from an oracle database with this query:


and I am getting the correct value of 1111

When I insert that value into a a sql server table, I am getting a different value.

For instance, let's assume that the ssn that I am grabbing is 123456789, in Oracle, I get 6789 which is correct.

However, after inserting the value a sql server db as
Insert into mytable (ssn) values(ssn), the value shows as 5678.

I also tried selecting the entire ssn as

FROM MYTABLE and then try inserting into a sql server db as:

Insert into mytable (ssn) values(right(ssn,4).

I still end up with 5678.

Can anyone, please tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance
