Round Money Field to 2 decimals

How do you round a money field to 2 decimals?

I would have thought rount(field, 2) would work but it doesn't

I only want to return:

Original Value = 12.040506  -----   Return Value =  12.04

What does yours return?  This should be the proper syntax:

round(myfield, 2)

ROUND ( numeric_expression, length [ , function ] )

An expression of the exact numeric or approximate numeric data type categories, or types that are implicitly convertible to float.

The precision to which numeric_expression is to be rounded. When length is a positive number, numeric_expression is rounded to the number of decimal places specified by length. When length is a negative number, numeric_expression is rounded on the left side of the decimal point, as specified by length.

The type of operation to perform. When function is omitted or has a value of 0 (default), numeric_expression is rounded. When a value other than 0 is specified, numeric_expression is truncated.

Mine returns the number rounded to that many in the decimal..
For example:

17.701010 = 17.700000

I only want 17.70 returned

I think the round is working.  maybe you are assigning the result to a float or other numeric datatype.  You can do this instead of using round.

Declare @RoundValue decimal(18,2)

select @RoundValue = CAST([Original Value] as decimal(18,2))
