Hello, everyone!

I am still learning to use Statistical softwares and I have a question about R.
I have a data table which has one column with 5571 codes, one code in each line. Each code has 7 digits and I need to delete the last digit of each code. I want to know if I can do this in an easy way using the software R and how, because it is almost impossible to delete each number manually.
Please, I would appreciate if someone could help me telling how to do it using R or if there is another software that I could use.

Thank you!

How are the codes stored in your data? Character? Factor? Numeric?
