Hi,
Below query displays result as 0.00 but i want to show as 0.73

SELECT ROUND(CAST (22/30 AS decimal (6,2)),-2);

Please suggest where m going wrong.


Thanks,
Abhas.

SELECT ROUND(CAST (22.0/30 AS decimal (6,2)),2);



1/ Sql considers 22 and 30 as integers, and so it performs an integer division. So the result is 0. Writing 22.0 force Sql to perform a decimal division.
2/ -2 as second parameter for ROUND force rounding to 100, not to 0.01 ;-)

Thanks Ronald,

select CAST(22 as decimal (6,2))/CAST(30 as decimal (6,2)) is also giving me output. Smile
