How do I find a list of mathematical functions in SQL?

I would like to find the equivalent of the modulo function (Mod) in VB.

E.g. to look for houses with an even number, the following SQL statement works fine with Access databases:

SELECT * FROM Place WHERE (((Place.house_no) Mod 2)=0);

How do I do this in SQL Server?

did you try

SELECT * FROM Place WHERE Place.house_no % 2=0;

I think sql server uses modulo operator that looks like a percent sign

%

To find complete list of mathematical functions and operators try look up On-Line documentation under
"Transact-SQL Reference->Operators"
and
"Transact-SQL Reference->Functions"
