i know i can do the floor() on a decimal number and then store that to a variable and subtract it from the original number

example

@a = 2.75

@b = floor(2.75)

@c = @a - @b (this gives me 0.75)

but is there a function that does this in SQL Server

Cheers,
Chandra

If you can't use convert(), you can always use cast(). BTW, I can't remember how floor() behaves for negative numbers, but I know there's a reason I end up using round() instead.

Not in any version of SQL Server that I know of. You're pretty much stuck with doing the math like you did.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

What about using modulus (%)? Like some flavor of the following:

select replace(1234.4321 % 1 ,'0.','')
