here's the first way i thought of: compare the value to the convert(,int) of itself.

declare @number decimal(18,4)
Set @number = 10.0
--here's one way, compare the value to the integer conversion of itself.
IF number = convert(int,@number)
PRINT 'Can Be Integer'
ELSE 'Must Remain Decimal

I'm curious... why do you need to do such a validation? What is the business rule behind it all?

Jeff,

A business case for this might be inventory. In our case we had a clerk enter in an invalid unit of measure then she completed some transactions. This resulted in decimal places in our inventory when the items were 'whole'.

Specifically in our case the item comes in a pack of 6. The master case should have had 10 packs of 6 in it. Instead she said it had .44 of a pack in it.

What is the datatype of the "field" this entry was made to? I'm thinking that the front end would be the right place for this type of "business logic".

The front end can only do so much to stop bad user action. We have some items which allow decimal places and some that don't. Our system has a check for that but only if the person who sets it up does so 'correctly'. Alas it is not done correctly every time.

Agreed. With the idea of and simplicity of input data masking on the front end, I don't know why more people don't take advantage of such things for numeric and date/time "fields".
