number - trunc(number,0) should do it

Here is the solution:

select substring(cast(salary as varchar(30)),charindex('.', cast(salary as varchar(30))) , 6) from Emp

Emp is the name of table and salary is the numeric field in Emp table.

This will give u the 5 digits after decimal point.

Here I have assumed that the maximum width of "salary" field is 30.

for ORACLE the solution would be

select substr(salary, instr(salary, '.'), 5) from Emp

ORACLE only
You don't have to convert number to string.

SELECT <number_field> - FLOOR(<number_field>)
FROM <table>;

This will return the decimal part, as FLOOR returns the nearest integer smaller or equal.
