I am building a report that will prompt for an integer skuNumber.

I would like to filter based on certain digits of this number.

For instance -

if 2nd digit of skuNumber is 3, display X
if 2nd digit of skuNumber is 4, display Y
if 2nd digit of skuNumber is 5, display Z

Can't figure out how to dissect the integer i.e. denote 2nd digit, 3rd digit and so on.

Do you know what size the integer is? Is it a fixed length?
Otherwise you need to convert to character format - will it be an issue if there is a 0 as the first character?

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
SSIS can be used in a similar way.
