    use a function like to_char or to_num depending on your business need

    Code:
    Insert Into
       TABLE_B (reference_id)
    Select
       SubStr(identification_no,1,5)
    From
       TABLE_A
    Is that what you mean?

    yes that's it. if it's column 1 in table A has REVISION_DATE DATE
    and Column1 in tableB has REvision_date varchar(10)

    You might want to refresh your SQL
