I have a UTM datasets with 8 digits, so the first digits are 32 (for UTM Zone 32N), but which EPSG should I use to get the data at the right spot in QGIS in a 6 digits system.

If I want to transfer UTM coordinates with 6 digits to 8, I think I could use EPSG 5652 (ETRS89 / UTM zone 32N (N-zE)) but which one I should use to get a 8 digit value to the 6 digits type?

Your dataset should appear in QGIS with EPSG:5652. If not, use Set CRS for Layer to get it.

The 6-digit CRS is EPSG:25832. Rightclick on the layer, Save As ... under a different name and that CRS, and add it to the canvas.

It might be even enough if you just change the project CRS to EPSG:25832, leaving the dataset unchanged.
