I am submitting the following statement to our SQL server:

INSERT INTO _Transactions_FULFILLMENT(_Transactions_FULFILLMENT.UID, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.XID, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Company, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Client, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Account, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.SubAccount, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.CallerID, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.DNIS, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.CallTime, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.CallDate, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Agent, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Disposition, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Field_Name, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Field_Tel, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Field_Message, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Field_Notes, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Number, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.CFWDID, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Disposition_Transferred, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Disposition_Resolved, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Disposition_Notification, _Transactions_FULFILLMENT.Disposition_Open) VALUES (NULL, NULL, 'XACT', CAST('1702' AS real), CAST('8002111812' AS real), CAST('0' AS real), '1234567890', CAST('2345678900' AS real), NULL, NULL, NULL, 'Test Call', 'Testy', '1231231231', NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, '0', '0', '0', '0'); SELECT @@IDENTITY as theid

I cannot change the CAST portions of this query.

What saves in the database is:
CAST('8002111812' AS real), saves as 8002112000. Column type Numeric(12,0)
This field "Account" stores account numbers up to 10 digits in length.

I have a similar problem with:
CAST('2345678900' AS real) - Same setting as above.

It does NOT happen with small numbers - ie: 1702, saves as 1702.

Can someone please help?

Thanks.

Richard,

You might want to try casting those values as bigint's instead:

CAST('8002111812' AS bigint)

I tried it through Query Analyzer and it produced the exact number without any trailing zeros or scientific notation.

Good luck!

You will have to change the cast - it's not at all appropriate for the task. The synonym for REAL in SQL Server is Float(24) which has a precision of only 7 digits - which is why you're seeing the truncation.
The cast should be to the actual type of the target.

The software that is producing the SQL Statement cannot be changed. I was wondering if there is something I can do on my side. The vendor has already stonewalled me. (Trust me, I tried to put this on them first).

you don't appear to need to cast anyway just present the number ..

ps
use scope_identity()  and not @@identity which will not always give you the desired result..
