Oops, you must add coalesce(...,'') to compensate a length of 0 when the number is 0

with test(a,b,c,d) as (select 123, 4560,0,8090 from sysibm.sysdummy1)

select coalesce(right(digits(a),int(log10(a))+1),'')
    !! coalesce(right(digits(b),int(log10(b))+1),'') 
    !! coalesce(right(digits(c),int(log10(c))+1),'') 
    !! coalesce(right(digits(d),int(log10(d))+1),'')
from test
