Subj:   True rounding algorithm
 
From:   Jeremy Christiansen

Does anyone know the true rounding algorithm for Teradata numeric datatypes? Consider the following:

     sel 99.5 (decimal(3,0))
        ,99.50 (decimal(3,0))
        ,99.500 (decimal(3,0))
        ,99.5000 (decimal(3,0))
        ,99.50000 (decimal(3,0))
     ;

Apparently (in V2R2) 99.5, 99.50, and 99.5000 are rounded to 100, but 99.500 is not.
