sql query with field combination

I have this 2 fields SBSNBR, SEQNBR and I need to combine them into a 50 character length . The total records of the two fields will be 11 in total and I want the remaining to populated with zeroes. Blow is an example of expected output: characters are left justified so it would look like: 12345678900000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Up to 2 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 512.0 KiB each and 1.0 MiB total.

Can you please clarify what you are trying to do? Do you just want to concatenate the 2 numbers into a string? Can you give us some examples of data in the 2 fields and what output you want? Thanks.
