I have a column type 'real' and it looks fine in the table when I view it in SQL Server Enterprise Manager, but when I pull it up as part of a query in Query Analyzer, the amount of digits is much larger after the decimal point than the original number stored in the table. I didn't do anything special to the column other than call it in the query.
Enterprise manager Query Analyzer
do I have to do anything special when I run a query to get it to look like it does in Enterprise Manager? I want to export the query to a text file, but am afraid that the output would contain the extra digits.
