For example, I have a column store where the values are of 4 digit and 5 digit values

STORE
====
100
2328
23456
222
2889
43754

I have to update the table like this.

STORE
====
100
2328
2345
222
2889
4375

Please help me do this using update SQL?

Try this out.
Code:

UPDATE your.table
SET STORE= CONCAT (SUBSTR(STORE,1,4),' ')   
;

The datatype of store is numeric and not character. So usage of substring will result in sqlerror -171.
