Requirement
Need result in 8digit,(comma not dot) then 2decimal digit i.e. 12345678,90 or 00001234,50 (if value is less than 8 digit then lpad with 0)

I am using query as
select LPAD(replace(to_number(to_char(1234.7,'S999999990D99')),'.',','),11,'0') from dual

I am getting result as : 000001234,7 but i need result as 000001234,70
i.e. 0 at the right is missing.

How can get result as 000001234,70 and what should be my query.

use TO_CHAR to obtain what you desire

SQL> select to_char(1234.7,'000000000D00') from dual;
TO_CHAR(1234.

For using a comma instead of a period (dot),
See NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS
and NLS_TERRITORY

I need ,(comma) and not .(dot). I tried to_char options but not getting results.

Please post the correct query that will give me the desired result.

1. You want all two fractional digits, so you must use 00 not 99.
2. You are replacing D (fractional part separator) with comma so why not simply use third to_char parameter?
3. LPAD makes no sense. You will end up with zeros followed by minus followed by value for negative numbers:

SQL> select LPAD(replace(to_number(to_char(-1234.7,'S999999990D99')),'.',','),11,'0') from dual
  2  /

LPAD(REPLACE(TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(-1234.7,'S999
--------------------------------------------
0000-1234,7

SQL> 

4. That to_number negates all work you did converting to string.

Use:

SQL> select to_char(1234.7,'S00000000D00','nls_numeric_characters='',.''') from dual
  2  /

TO_CHAR(1234
------------
+00001234,70

SQL> select to_char(-1234.7,'S00000000D00','nls_numeric_characters='',.''') from dual
  2  /

TO_CHAR(-123
------------
-00001234,70

SQL> 

Replace S with FM if you don't want to display + for non negative numbers.

SY.
