How to round to the nearest WHOLE number ?

96.58 --97



Retrieving Nearest Number From Database

OK, this is the scenario. I have a database withmanycolumns( each a mean value and a standard deviation, and with it a set of coordinates that i want to retrieve ).

Then i have a value that i want to query with the database, by comparing it with the mean and its standard deviation, and it should return a few sets (lets say 2) of coordinates whereby the the value of the mean is closet to the one in the database, in order of nearest value. How should i do it, since i am not using the exact value of the mean in the database?

I know its a bit confusing the way i wrote, but anyone understand wat i am trying to say and can help, i am very grateful. I had googled around for answers but cannot find. Thanks.

Round A Number

How do I write sql syntax to round the last digit. For example, 12.152 should be 12.15. My current sql syntax does not round the last digit as follows:

Select tblARInvoiceDetail.UnitPrice * tblARInvoiceDetail.Quantity AS ChargeBeforeDiscount
tblARInvoiceDetail ON
tblARInvoices.ARInvoiceID = tblARInvoiceDetail.ARInvoiceID

The tblARInvoiceDetail.UnitPrice column is numeric;length 9;precision 18
The Quantity column is integer;length 4; precision 10;scale 0

Any Suggestions?

How To Disable Autmatic Round Of Of A Decimal Number In Sql Server Using

Hi all,
I am sorry if i am posting this error in an inappropriate froum.
Well in my intranet web application i want to enter a number to the database(sql sever 2005) that has a column(schoolkm) whose type is decimal(9, 2). Now if i want to enter the value 1.5 in the text box and enter that value to the database through interface then that value automatically rounds to 2. But when i get into the table and enter that value by hand then that value enters perfectly i.e. without rounding of. I want to know the reason and how can i cure this problem.
Regards & thanks in advance

List By Nearest Date?

Hi, I'm making a birthdays database where I want to list everyone in it ordered by the firstcoming birthdays according to the current date.

I have all the birthday records stored in a table called bursdager and the person name is stored in the navn column and the persons birthday date is stored in the dato column.

I'm having some problems, currently I have this statement:



SELECT navn, dato FROM bursdager
WHERE DATEPART(month, dato) >= DATEPART(month, getdate())
ORDER BY DATEPART(month, dato), DATEPART(day, dato)

INSERT INTO @tbl -- those are the one who allready have had birthday this year
SELECT navn, dato FROM bursdager
WHERE DATEPART(month, dato) < DATEPART(month, getdate())
ORDER BY DATEPART(month, dato), DATEPART(day, dato)


It works *allmost* as it should-- except, it still lists the last persons who had birthday first, even the days after their birthday if the month is still the same.

I thought about adding an additional check:

AND DATEPART(day, dato) >= DATEPART(day, getdate())

in the WHERE clause of the SELECT statement but that won't be correct either because it then just lists everyone based on whether the day number the person was born is higher or less than the day number of the current date.

Anyone have any suggestions? Is there an easier way to do it?

Query - Nearest Birthdays To Mine

I have a date (my birthday). I would like to find the closest birthdays to mine, both before and after my birthday. I would like to list the people in my database who are the closest age to me, but in that order. So sorting my table by age and taking a row below and above my birthday is not going to work. This is because the three people below me may all have their birthday the next day, while those above me may have theirs years before mine.

Birthdays sorted by date:

05/10/1979 jim
12/01/1980 bob
10/04/1983 mike
10/05/1983 larry
11/21/1983 dan
12/07/1984 josh
05/07/1999 dylan

The order I wish to achieve is:

10/05/1983 larry
11/21/1983 dan
12/07/1984 josh
12/01/1980 bob
05/10/1979 jim
05/07/1999 dylan

Thanks in advance.

T-SQL ROUND(decimal, Int) Vs C# Round(Decimal, Int32)

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

Changing Seconds To Hours And Minutes And Rounding To The Nearest 15 Minute.

I found in another forum that if I take the seconds and divide them by 15 then round up and multiply them by 4 I can get this done, but I can't figure out how to work it into my select statement. Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated. dbo.SLPTRANS.TimeSpent is the field I am trying to convert.

SELECT dbo.SLPTRANS.ClientID, SUM(dbo.SLPTRANS.TransValue) AS Expr1, dbo.SLPTRANS.TimeSpent AS Expr2
dbo.INVOICE ON dbo.SLPTRANS.InvoiceID = dbo.INVOICE.RecordID
HAVING (dbo.SLPTRANS.ClientID = 405)

Round ?

I have the statement below which I use in an update

select (round(sum(tottime/60),2)) as ttime from vw_cms_suptime
where vw_cms_suptime.[tracking number] = 970
tracking.[tracking number]

Even though I have the round the statement returns a value

Round Bug

Has anyone been experiencing problems with rounding to 2 decimal places in SQL 7? I have a bunch of queries that generate web reports. Under 6.5 everything was fine. Now under 7.0 any number that needs to be rounded to 2 decimals is actually giving me several decimal places.

Here is a simplified version of what I am doing:
DECLARE @x real
DECLARE @y real
SELECT @x = 223.1
SELECT @y = 59.7

SELECT ROUND((@x/@y),2)

Result should be 3.74. But instead I am getting 3.7400000000000002

If anybody has heard if Microsoft has declared this as a known bug please let me know.

Thanks for your time.

There is a filed in a table of type decimal(12, 8)

when running a select query on this table for this field i.e.
select field1 from table1

the data is shown like:

And therefore the report shows the same figure.

How do I get this field to show up in the report as 4 decimal places. i.e.

Tried the properties of the cell to format the text into a number but there is only 2 decimal places there.
Even tried the expression by using Rnd(field1). This does not seem to do what I am after.
