Formatting Decimal Places In A Query In MS SQL

Jan 14, 2004

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:

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.

Formatting A Float Variable To 2 Decimal Places

Dec 20, 2004


I am filling a temp table with various float variables and I need to format one particular column to 2 decimal places.

Does anyone know the correct syntax to do this, and should it be done before filling the temp table or when I select what I needs from the temp table?

Set Up Query To Return Only 2 Decimal Places?

Mar 3, 2005

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:

$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.

Any help appreciated.

Never mind, I found it muhself....

FORMAT(AVG(fin),2) works perfectly!!

Want To Get Results Without Decimal Places

Jun 28, 2004


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 :(

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Decimal Places Displayed

Mar 21, 2007


I'm running the following query against a SQL Server 2003 database to receive the results below:

SELECT PayPeriod AS [Pay Period], SUM(PayHours) AS [Pay Hours]
FROM EmployeePayHours
GROUP BY PayPeriod

Pay Period Pay Hours713 80

714 120

717 59.5

718 80

719 80

A colleague of mine, however, is running the same query against the same database (using a different machine) and gets the following results.

Pay Period Pay Hours

713 80

714 120

717 59.500000000000021

718 79.999999999999972

719 79.999999999999972

Is there a setting somewhere that needs to be changed? Thanks.

Trying To Calculate To 2 Decimal Places

Nov 28, 2015

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,

[Code] ....

Decimal Places In Node_Description??

Feb 26, 2007

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.

Help Withrounding Money To 2 Decimal Places?

Oct 26, 2004

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?

15.1456 ================ 15.15
4.1328 ================== 4.13
5.16 =================== 5.16

Decimal Places On Money Values

Sep 6, 2007


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?

Missing Decimal Places After Cast()-ing

Mar 13, 2008

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?

Format Field With Decimal Places

Apr 11, 2007

Hi all,

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)

Reduce Scale Of Floats To 4 Decimal Places From 16

Oct 17, 2001

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

KELLYJ 2.1233
DONOVM 1.6000000000000001
OLSSON 15.3750

I have tried using round and cast. My examples work like the following:

SELECT 27.719999999

SELECT CAST(ROUND(27.719999999,4) AS DECIMAL(50,4))

When I try the same against a column to update the entire table it leaves the rows like above as longer to the right of the decimal point.

Any pointers on how to get these numbers back to 4 decimals places would be much appreciated

Dividing Two Numbers Truncates After 4 Decimal Places

Dec 19, 2000

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?

This is strange....

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