Hi Everyone,

I would like to 'drop' some trailing zeros from a decimal value, e.g.: 50.000000, and I am wondering how to go about this?

The value is definitely of decimal type, and in this instance I know that I want to eliminate exactly six (6) zeros.

Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

David

Normally you should not care about trailing 0's. The front end worries about the display and making it pretty.

But if you have to, this should do it:


Select cast(100/2.0 as decimal(3))

Cast the value to whichever of the integer datatypes is appropriate.
