ICD9
CD
-------
695.1
940
940.0

should be modified to

ICD9
CD
-------
6951
940
9400

Can this be handled through a SQL Query?

how are we to provide any guidance,
when you don't bother to provide us the ddl for the column?

as a side note, going from
695.1 to 9651 is times 10
940 to 940 is times 1
940.0 to 9400 is times 10

what kind of rules do you have?
but then again, that sorta depends on the datatype of the column
which you have neglected to provide.........................

so at this point, there is nothing we can do to help

Sorry for the incomplete information -

Below is the declaration of the field -
ICD9_CD CHAR(7) NOT NULL WITH DEFAULT

The decimal as such can be at any position in all 7 bytes. Can a SQL query remove it?

Examples for better understanding -

Current --> Modified
12345.7 --> 123457
1234.67 --> 123467
123.567 --> 123567
12.4567 --> 124567
1.34567 --> 134567

Below is what I did and it worked. Thank you Bren...!

Code:
UPDATE TABLE.NAME                           
SET ICD9_CD=SUBSTR(REPLACE(ICD9_CD,'.',''),1,7)
WHERE ICD9_CD != ' ';
