Efficient methods to remove leading zeroes in HANA

Hi All,

Removing leading zeroes is a common requirement on Asset numbers, Material numbers and so on.

Usually, we create a calculated column with a LTRIM function.

But just wanted to check if anyone has a more efficient way to do this - considering this a string operation which may have an overhead when executed over large datasets.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Shyam
