hi

i need to eliminate leading zeros on a text field where some records are numbers and some come as alphanumeric:

T00123456 should return T00123456
000123456 should return 123456
000123050 should return 123050

any help is appreciated

i'm retrieving data from an oracle db v. 8 on an ssis package (sql sever 2005)

thank you
