Hi,
I'm trying to convert a decimal (20,3) to a varchar or char length of 8. So for example if my decimal is 475.20 I need it to return 00000475 (without the pence), and then if it's 0.00 I need it to return 00000000.

Can somebody advise of the syntax I need? Tried searching but can't find anything

Thanks.

Try something like this:

DECLARE @n DECIMAL(20, 3) = 475.20;
SELECT RIGHT(REPLICATE('0', 8) + CAST(CAST(@n AS DECIMAL(8)) AS VARCHAR(8)), 8)
