 I have output for scores that have 2 decimal places (all zeros). I need to remove the decimal places and return a 4 character number in int format. Example: 65.00 must return as 0065; 108.00 must return as 0108. Can anyone help?

 SELECT RIGHT('000'+CAST(CAST(MyField AS INT) AS VARCHAR(4)),4) should do the trick

If so, declare the variable as something that will do what you need, then don't cast it to Int inside the string function.Declaring the variable as Int drops the decimal value before you even begin formatting it. - Gus "GSquared", RSVP, OODA, MAP, NMVP, FAQ, SAT, SQL, DNA, RNA, UOI, IOU, AM, PM, AD, BC, BCE, USA, UN, CF, ROFL, LOL, ETCProperty of The Thread"Nobody knows the age of the human race, but everyone agrees it's old enough to know better." - Anon

 Here's another way (just foolin' around):`;WITH MyData AS ( SELECT score=65.00 UNION ALL SELECT 108.00 UNION ALL SELECT 1108.00)SELECT LEFT(REVERSE(CAST(REVERSE(score) AS DECIMAL(8,4))), 4)FROM MyData` My mantra: No loops! No CURSORs! No RBAR! Hoo-uh!My thought question: Have you ever been told that your query runs too fast?My advice:INDEXing a poor-performing query is like putting sugar on cat food. Yeah, it probably tastes better but are you sure you want to eat it?The path of least resistance can be a slippery slope. Take care that fixing your fixes of fixes doesn't snowball and end up costing you more than fixing the root cause would have in the first place.Need to UNPIVOT? Why not CROSS APPLY VALUES instead?Since random numbers are too important to be left to chance, let's generate some!Learn to understand recursive CTEs by example.Splitting strings based on patterns can be fast!

 Now i have a field that is getting populated from 2 other fields based on which was in not null. We removed decimal point and 0 front filled it.This is what I'm currently doing:(CASE WHEN edm.Percentage IS NULL THEN (ISNULL(RIGHT ('00000000' + CONVERT (varchar (7), FLOOR (ABS (ROUND(edm.amount,2) * 100.0))),7),0))else(ISNULL(RIGHT ('00000000' + CONVERT (varchar (7), FLOOR (ABS (ROUND(edm.Percentage,2) * 100.0))),7),0))end)inside a select statement,We are inputting this data in a card that will split this field up.first 2 bytes go on 1 card and next 5 bytes go on 2nd cardi tried A SCALAR value.but the problem i had was it gave me a constant on the field because i assigned it outside of the insert/select statement and wasnt sure how to do it inside the statement.
