Hi Experts,
Can someone please help me with this basic question. I need to get 2 digits after decimal point in sql server. Doing the following in sql query analyzer;
select 10/3 gives me 3.  I need to get 3.33
If I do the calculations inside the stored procedure, same thing happens and I do not get digits after decimal. Thanks
