I have a doubt. I have a field in database that is character responsible for storing Account number. Now what i have to do is that when i enter some value for this field for e.g 00AVRT345, i want to store this value as AVRT345. If it would had been just to display it, it was easy by using left-trim(field,"0"). But how do i use/ trim the value first and then store it in the database? Can some one please tell! Thanks in advance.
