I have data like this in table A.Column 3 :

20569980.00::378845.00::20758526.00::190286.00

I want to make that data into like this:

0000020569980.00::0000000378845.00::0000020758526.00::0000000190286.00

Do you have idea to solve this problem?

Here is a way to do it:


DECLARE @String VARCHAR(120) = '20569980.00::378845.00::20758526.00::190286.00';

-- OUTPUT: 0000020569980.00::0000000378845.00::0000020758526.00::0000000190286.00

SELECT STUFF(STUFF(STUFF(STUFF(@String,38,0, '0000000'), 25, 0, '00000'), 14, 0, '0000000'), 1, 0, '00000');
