Seems too simple?  Add the clause

WHERE ABS(zcta) < 10000

to your query.

Hi PGSTATS, can i get hint on this-if you can please?

i have two variable in dataset named 'telno' and 'state', couple of state required zero '0' in front of 'telno' variable. if i wants to add zero '0' for couple of states only, how can i do that? 'telno' is a numeric variable...

Thanks.

case when state in ('s1','s2','s3') then '0' end || telno as telno2

telno is numeric, cannot be a || operand. Rather :

cats(case when state in ('s1','s2','s3') then '0' end, telno) as telnoChr
