How do I prevent from losing the 1st position of non "0" field, using this logic: WHERE concat(TRN@DS, concat(substring(concat('00',TRNYDS),2,2), concat(substring(concat('00',TRNMDS),2,2), substring(concat('00',TRNDDS),2,2)))) between

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sorry this keeps crashing on me.

Just this part — year? substring(concat(’00’,TRNYDS),2,2),
assuming that perhaps 2009 is blank9 and 2010 is 10
1. Trim(TRNYDS) will make it 9 or 10 .. no blank
2. CONCAT(’00’,Trim(TRNYDS)) makes it 009 or 0010
3 now you want the substring of the last 2
If you have a left function then
Left(CONCAT(’00’,Trim(TRNYDS)),2)
but you probably don’t have one .. in which case
Substring(CONCAT(’00’,Trim(TRNYDS)),length(CONCAT(’00’,Trim(TRNYDS)) -1),2)
