Subj:   How to CAST a number without getting a decimal point.
From:   DUELL, BOB


How can I avoid the trailing decimal point in the result of casting a numeric result to character? In other words, this query:

     select cast( acct_id*-1 as char(29)) as new_acct_id
     from   my_table
     where  acct_id = 123775780

Results in a string "-123775780." (without the quotes of course). I want the result returned without the trailing decimal point.

I'm using SQL Assistant and the column data type is DECIMAL(15,0) if that matters.

I'*know* I've seen this somewhere. Thanks in advance!
