The following query truncates the decimal characters when we convert it to varchar.

declare @d float
declare @d1 float
select @d = 34343.454
select @d1 = 676.1566545
select cast (@d as varchar(50)) + CHAR (9) + cast (@d1 as varchar(50))

ouput:
34343.5 676.157

but the required output is:
34343.454 676.1566545

Can anyone help to find a best solution for this ?
Thanks in advance.

I tried the below code

declare @d float
declare @d1 float
select @d = 34343.454
select @d1 = 676.1566545
select cast (@d as varchar(50))
select cast (@d1 as varchar(50))

I got the below output.

34343.453999999998

676.15665449999995

declare @d float
declare @d1 float
select @d = '34343.454'
select @d1 = 676.1566545

select cast(cast (@d as decimal(12,3)) as varchar(20)) + CHAR (9) + cast(cast (@d1 as decimal(12,3)) as varchar(20))

Hi Madi,

The output wont be the one I expected. The decimal should not get truncated.

Here it is

declare @d float
declare @d1 float
select @d = '34343.454'
select @d1 = '676.1566545'

select cast(cast (@d as decimal(12,3)) as varchar(20)) + CHAR (9) + cast(cast (@d1 as decimal(18,7)) as varchar(20))
