Subj:   Strange rounding
 
From:   martin.fuchs

Hello to you all,

using Teradata 6.1.1 we encountered a strange rounding situation (in FastExport, but also in Queryman)

     select CAST((3649.99 (FORMAT '--Z(15)9,V9(3)')) AS  CHAR(19))

delivers 3650.00, whereas slight changes

     select CAST((3649.99 (FORMAT '--Z(14)9,V9(3)')) AS  CHAR(19))

or

     select CAST((3649.99 (FORMAT '--Z(15)9,V9(4)')) AS  CHAR(19))

deliver the correct value 3649.99.

Does anyone know the reason for this ? (the maxdecimal value in DBSControl is 15, if that has something to do with the phenomenon)


With best regards

Martin Fuchs
