          You would probably be better using an External Table...

              People aren't here to just write your code for you, especially when you haven't provided any exact example of what you're trying to do. (I suggest you read: {message:id=9360002})

              There are plenty of examples of creating external tables on the web if you bother to look:

              http://www.morganslibrary.org/reference/externaltab.html

              Have a go yourself, and if you're still having a problem, post what you've tried.

                  venkat,

                  What have you tried? As Blu said, the title of this forum isn't "write my code for me because I'm too lazy to read the documentation or even search the web for similar examples"

                  Well, he didn't say that verbatim, but that's what he or she meant.

                    Definitely a "he" the last time I looked. ;)

                      So, when you've created your external table, you will select from it using an SQL query. Within that query (whether you are just selecting or doing an INSERT ... SELECT ... or whatever) you will be able to alter your "code" data as you require, whether you do that by multiplying it by 10, or by treating it as a string and removing the "."... the choice is yours.
