Teradata RPAD - Right Padding

access_time 15 days ago visibility7 comment 0

Teradata RPAD function is used to add repeated characters at the end of a string to increase the string to a specified length. It can be used to add trailing space or zeros to a string.

RPAD function signature 

RPAD(source_string, length, fill_string)

Returns the source_string padded to the right with the characters in fill_string so that the resulting string is length characters. 

Pad with trailing zeros

SELECT RPAD('123456789',23,'0');



Omit fill_string parameter

The last parameter is optional. When it is omitted, the default value is space (' ')


SELECT RPAD('123456789',23);


'123456789              '
