Good day!

I want to generate a format like "00000043' from "42". Ive setup a counter table tbl_ID_Counter..

Table_Name   ID (where ID is bigint datatype)
PO-Summary   42


Here is my script but it still outputs 42.


ALTER PROCEDURE GetSequenceNumber
	-- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
	@TransType AS VARCHAR(50),
	@return as varchar(10) output
AS
BEGIN
	-- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
	-- interfering with SELECT statements.
	DECLARE @SequenceNumber AS VARCHAR(10)
	SET NOCOUNT ON;

    SELECT @SequenceNumber=RIGHT(REPLICATE('0', 8) + CAST(ID AS VARCHAR(8)), 8)
    FROM tbl_ID_Counter WHERE TableName=@TransType
    
    SET @return=@SequenceNumber + 1
    
    RETURN @return
END
GO


It should output "00000043" if the ID is 42

Thank you!

maybe:

declare @id int
declare @return int
set @return=42
set @id=@return+1
select RIGHT(REPLICATE('0', 8),8)+ CAST(@ID AS VARCHAR(8))

Return command returns an integer. See BOL: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174998.aspx
Also, when you add a varchar and an integer, your varchar will get implicitly changed to an integer. Run this and see.
declare @SequenceNumber varchar(10)
SELECT @SequenceNumber=RIGHT(REPLICATE('0', 8) + '42', 8)
select @SequenceNumber
select @SequenceNumber + 1
