Subj:   Re: Query to identify the Decimal
From:   Michael Larkins

Hello Satyamadhav:

  Are you sure you want the whole query to fail?  

I had the same thought and since David expressed my same concern so well, what if you did something like this:

     case when col.id <>0.0
          then cast(col.id as float)
          else 'failure'.

This will display the word failure whenever the col.id value is = 0 (zero). Of course you could use any word, even 'zero' to express the fact that your sql to make it a float.
