Decimal places not returning from a stored procedure

I have a stored procedure which should be returning a percentage back to the ASP page.

The problem is it is rounding up to the nearest whole number and not returning the decimal places.


The relevant parts of the stored procedure are as follows(the variable used to return the percentage is @result4):

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_highlevelsummaryrpt

@result4 int output
AS
declare @discinc decimal


if (@discinc is null)
          begin
          set @discinc = '0'
     end

set @discinc = (select Approved_Disc_Inc from pr_misc)

set @result4 = @discinc
select @result4

In the ASP page, I am showing the variable on the page as follows:


result4 = cmd_Execute_stored_procedure.Parameters("@result4")

%><td><%Response.Write(formatnumber(result4,2))%></td><%

I have tried changing the data type in the stored to float, numeric but none work.

Can anyone help??

you have declared your output variable (@result4) as an integer, therefore you will not get any decimalplaces returned.

try this: @return4 numeric(13,10)

That's a very good point but unfortunately it still doesn't work for some reason.

I tried declaring the output variable as decimal and a float but that won't work either

select Approved_Disc_Inc from pr_misc

does this return a single value? or multiple records? can you post more of your stored procedure?

does the stored procedure display the proper values when you run it from query analyser?

I would also change this line to avoid any future problems if more records are added.
set @discinc = (select Approved_Disc_Inc from pr_misc)
to
set @discinc = (select TOP 1 Approved_Disc_Inc from pr_misc)
