Here is an example:[code]--with both numbers the user wanted to get 0.01select ROUND(0.0100000+.00499999,2,1)select ROUND(0.0000001+.00499999,2,1) [/code]AdiMon, 06 May 2013 05:39:58 GMTAdi Cohn-120898RE: Rounding Up with given precisionhttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1449628-1292-1.aspxHaven't proofed (I normally don't do rounding) it but why wouldn't ROUND(somenumber+.00499999,2,1) work for you?Mon, 06 May 2013 05:25:03 GMTJeff ModenRE: Rounding Up with given precisionhttp://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1449628-1292-1.aspxIt works for me.

So far I can't find a way to do it. ROUND function doesn't work for me because it can't round up, CEILING doesn't work as well because the results is integer.What I would like to achieve is a rounding up with give precision of 2 places after dot i.e.5.0000016 should be 5.016.1000138 should be 6.117.1200073 should be 7.13Is it any way to do it in SQL?Mon, 06 May 2013 03:20:32 GMTphoenix_
