Anybody noticed that SQL Server rounds up if the value is half waybetween two rounded values, but C#'s Decimal.Round(Decimal,Int32)rounds to nearest even number?[color=blue]>From MSDN: "When d is exactly halfway between two rounded values, the[/color]result is the rounded value that has an even digit in the far rightdecimal position. For example, when rounded to two decimals, the value2.345 becomes 2.34 and the value 2.355 becomes 2.36. This process isknown as rounding toward even, or rounding to nearest."I perform the same calculation sometimes on the web server in C# andsometimes at the database in T-SQL, but want to get the same resultfrom both calculations. Could anybody offer any strategies for dealingwith this?Thanks ~ Matt

Hi, I am trying to get my string to 2 decimal places... Here is the code:string sumSQL = "SELECT CONVERT (float,sum(callTime)/count(callTime)) as CAVG FROM leads where agent = '" + agent + "' and " + dates.Text; SqlCommand sumCMD = new SqlCommand(sumSQL, conn2); object null1 = sumCMD.ExecuteScalar();if (null1 != null) {string avgS = sumCMD.ExecuteScalar().ToString();Response.Write(avgS + "<br>" + "</td></tr><tr>"); }

I have many columns of data. They are all using the money datatype. When Ienter a value into a column such as 32.00, it only shows up as 32. Whenoutputted to an ASP page using a query it also only displays 32. If thedata is 32.33, then the display is 32.33. How do I get it to display 32.00?Thanks!DarrenMCP

Hello, I have a datatable with a column of decimal numbers 0 - 1. I want to move the decimal 2 places to the right to make the column a percent column. I don't know how to do that. Thanks Steve

I am new to SQL 7, and am having trouble with the money and smallmoney data-types. When I pull data from these columns, it has four decimal places, and I need only two (four is screwing the perl code up). What do I do now?

The underlying table for my fact contains a Sale field whose data type is decimal.

In the cube editor, I have tried a few options (both for Data Type and Display format) but in my front-end I am still getting the results with 2 decimal places.

Can someone kindly help me how I can get the results in a rounded form so that the decimal places are not shown e.g. instead of seeing 12,345,678.98 I want the results rounded as 12,345,679.

If (and i really hope not) it boils down to using MDX in the front end then can u kindly guide me since I can only spell MDX at the moment :(

I am trying work out if certain columns in a database table have the "correct" data in them and work out the "percentage completeness" of the data...

So, I have been allocating a 1 if the data is complete and a 0 if it's not. Then adding up the results and dividing them by the number of results and multiplying them by 100 to get a percentage.

BUT - the answer always comes back as a whole number and I cannot work our why!

This is my sql:

SELECT Clients.ClientNumber_Legacy, CASE WHEN Client_Details_Enhanced.ClientType_Code = 'NK' THEN 0 ELSE 1 END, CASE WHEN Client_Details_Enhanced.Title_Code = 'NK' THEN 0 ELSE 1 END, (CASE WHEN Client_Details_Enhanced.ClientType_Code = 'NK' THEN 0 ELSE 1 END) + (CASE WHEN Client_Details_Enhanced.Title_Code = 'NK' THEN 0 ELSE 1 END) as total,

There's been several good posts on using the node description of a model as the end user description for a specific cluster. My model uses a number of continuous input columns defined as currency from a fact table in the source cube. After processing, the node description has elements that look like this:

-0.5799759795 <=Interest Expense <=0.8397462488 ,

Since the source data is currency, this makes the node description look a little strange. The data type in the model is set as double. The precision implied by the description is not what I want the model to consider. In the case above, the difference between the numbers listed is not significant.

It would be great to have a better node desciption that doesn't imply so much precision, but the bigger question is why does the cluster model turn currency types into doubles. Should I set the data type to long in the model so that cents are ignored? I know I should probably use discrete inputs, but I don't want to have to discretize the currency values in the cube since this would require me to set up fact dimensions for each currency column in the fact table.

Hello, is there a way to convert the value to just 2 decimal places, I created the report in Reporting Services and it has quite a few digits to each value. I looked at the table and found that the data type is {Float}. Is there a way to convert the values to just 2 decimal places?..Thank You.

Hi, i need to display my data in 2 decimal places but now i'm getting results after some calculation (for eg. 2.336224). How can i round it off to 2.34?

Dim subtot As Double Dim tax As Double Dim tot As Double subtot = "0.00" Dim sql As String sql = "SELECT items.qty, products.descrip, products.price FROM items INNER JOIN products ON items.productid = products.id WHERE (items.orderid = " & Request.QueryString("oid") & ")"Dim objConn As New SqlConnection("Data Source=.SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|AllStar.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True") Dim cmdCustomers As New SqlCommand(sql, objConn)Dim dataReader As SqlDataReader objConn.Open() dataReader = cmdCustomers.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)While dataReader.Read subtot = subtot + (dataReader.GetValue(0) * dataReader.GetValue(2)) End While tax = (subtot * 0.07) tot = (subtot + tax) Label1.Text = subtot Label2.Text = tax Label3.Text = tot ---------------------------------------- How to a convert the variable tax to just two decimals? I tried label2.text = CType(tax, Double) but that didn't work either Thanks in advance

Hi. I have a query that returns several averages and percentages. Is there some way to set up the query so the results only go to 2 decimal places? Here is a sample of the query I am using: Code:

$query = "SELECT COUNT(deal_id), SUM(vs), SUM(vs)/COUNT(deal_id)*100, AVG(fin) FROM sales GROUP BY salesperson";

It works great,except the results are several decimal places long, and I need it to be only 2.

I have a table with a money field that had previously been running calculation and storing the data into the database's money field. Since this field supports 4 decimal places, it was storing 4 decimal places worth of data. I have since cleaned up my insert routine to round everything up to two decimal places and it only inserts the rounded values. I now have to go back and update the old data with the two decimal place rule. How would I go about doing this?

Hey - I have a quick question and know that it is probably pretty simple, but I am stumped. I have a query where I need to make a colum a number that looks like a percent with 2 significant digits:

i.e., SELECT tblNumericCovert.number1, tblNumericCovert.number2, [number1]/[number2] AS testDiv FROM tblNumericCovert

where testDiv needs to spit out results like this ###.##

I am totally lost, if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

I have an SQL search that is converting two values to type money. I want it to show two digits after the decimal point but am getting inconsistent results. The first value is as follows:

tblInventoryItem.itemcost as originalcost (the column is datatype money)

This displays correctly i.e. 2000.00 or 150.70 etc

The second value is this:

tblInventoryItem.itemcost + tblUpgrades.ItemCost as totalcostincupgr (both columns are datatype money)

But this displays as 2000 or 150.7

How can I get the second value to show two decimal places even when the digits are zeros?

I have a field in a database which is a datatype Money. When I run a select query the data is coming back with 4 decimal places like 100.0000 but I only want 2 decimal places like 100.00.

Hello, The issue is to convert a number like 114270 to 114 + (270/320) = 114.84375. The decimal version is the desired result. In other words the last 3 digits of 114270 are in base 320.

Question: I cast my number as char() then use substring() to get the digits. Then I cast back to float and divide by 320. I get 0 when I do this and I'm not sure why.

Code follows: declare @p float set @p = (select top 1 P from [tablename] where Product = 'Z')

declare @pchar as char(6) set @pchar = cast(@price as char(6)) declare @first3 as char(3) declare @second3 as char(3) set @first3 = cast(substring(@pchar, 1,3) as float(25)) set @second3 = cast(substring(@pchar, 4,6) as float(25)) select @pchar -- 114270 select @first3 -- 114 select @second3/320 -- 0

I have tried changing cast(substring(@pchar, 4,6) as float(25)) to cast(substring(@pchar, 4,6) as decimal) and I get the same result. Any suggestions or is there a better way altogether?

I need to format a field to a set number of decimal places which is held as a field within the DB, and also format it as a standard number.

I have been able to set the format of the field to the decimal places field and it all works (the quantity in the row has the right number of decimal places), but i cant now format it as a number...

Heres an example:

The quantity is 1500 with 3 decimal places so it becomes 1500.000

I need to format it as a number with comma's etc such as 1,500.000

How would i go about doing this? Ive already used the format option for the decimal places and dont know how to add another format type (which in this case will be N)

I am working with an off the shelf app that controls decimal places through the application. All columns underlying the apps 'numeric' fields are floats. We are writing some scripts that need to compare numbers and some of them look like the second row

I have two fields - both defined as money. When I divide them, SQL Server truncates the result after the 4th decimal point. So SQL Server says: 370.45 / 3,391,517.85 = 0.0001 I want to achieve: 370.45 / 3,391,517.85 = 0.00010922837... etc. The field the result is going into is defined as decimal(20,18)

I've tried using "cast(1stmoneyfield as decimal(20,18)) / cast(2ndmoneyfield as decimal(20,18)) as dividednumber", but SQL Server reports back errors about null values and Arithmetic overflow and terminates.

I'm at a loss as to how to solve the problem. Any suggestions please?

I am getting my source data from another system am storing the SaleAmount of each product in a field the data type of which is [decimal](12, 2).

For some products I am getting an exact match (upto 2 decimal places) as compared with my source data BUT for some other products the value before the decimal places is correct but the 2 digits after the decimal place does not match with the source data :confused:

Even if this sounds stupid, can you please guide me. Am i missing some very basic and common sense thing?
