Subj:   Re: True rounding algorithm
 
From:   Michael Larkins

Hi All:

It would appear that V2R2 has a bug regarding the "implicit" conversion of the data types. It is good that it has been fixed in V2R3.

However, I have not ever trusted the implicit CAST and always use the explicit CAST function.

Try the following as I think you will like the results:

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

Best regards,

Mike
