[SOLVED]CHANGE INTERGER TO CHARACTER

Hello to all,

I would like to convert this integer to a character. I have the code below, but it seems to be padding the number with zero's:

 CR_NUMBER/A15= IF INC_INCIDENT_ID EQ 0 THEN '' ELSE EDIT(INC_INCIDENT_ID); 


Changes 200993916 to 00200993916. I need the zero's removed.

Will work while you only have 2 leading zeros.
This will don't care about how many zeros:
CR_NUMBER/A15= IF INC_INCIDENT_ID EQ 0 THEN '' ELSE FPRINT(INC_INCIDENT_ID, 'abc', 'A15'); 

Where abc = the format of INC_INCIDENT_ID such as P13, D13, ...

Well the EDIT is only going to work for numbers from 100000000 to 999999999, which is ok if all your numbers are in that range.

Alan above comment is applicable to the EDIT command suggested by MattC.

Yes indeed Martin. I was writing as you posted I reckon. FPRINT is the correct approach.
