Hi,

I have a field that stores 8 decimals, but I want to select this field in a query with the decimals rounded up to the fifth. The rounding up should always occur, even if the number is below five. For example:

83.00381433 rounds up to 83.00382000

I've played around with the CEILING function, but I'm not sure how to make it apply to the fifth decimal place.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.
Doug J.

Interesting question. Try putting together a CASE statement using the ROUND() function. Something like this:


declare @num numeric(10, 8) = 83.00381433 ;
SELECT CASE
WHEN round(@num, 5) - @Num < 0 THEN round(@num, 5) + .00001
ELSE round(@num, 5) END;



I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, but it should work

Edit: corrected boneheaded arithmetic error.

Maybe you didn't play enough with the ceiling function. ;-)

DECLARE @num numeric(10, 8) = 83.00381433 ;
SELECT CEILING( @num * 100000) / 100000;

Thank you both for responding. I tried the solution from Luis first (it was the simpler of the two) and found that it works like a charm. Guess I gave up on the Ceiling function too quickly.
