SQL T-SQL Query

SQL Query!

Help... So i created this query for this client


SELECT  TradePrice as Price, Quantity as Volume,  Contracttype as KIND, strike, expiringdate, comment, (substring (contract+convert(varchar,expiringdate),1,20)) as [FEEDCODE]    
FROM       TS_Positions
WHERE     (Contract LIKE 'LI%') OR
                      (Contract LIKE 'LK%') OR
                      (Contract LIKE 'LL%') OR
                      (Contract LIKE 'LM%')
ORDER BY Contract
__________________-

Data result was
Price              Volume        Kind               Strike             date              Comment       Life

0.0      1500      Call      97.25      20060106      NULL      LIF0620060106

2 questions--
1. How can I cut the result data for KIND just to show to C or P or F(basically the 1st letter not the whole word).
2. How can i change the result Decimal for Price column. It shows 0 but its really 15.625 or 16.25

Adding the query to above statement would be GREAT!!!!!! Thanks

which column is the price? I ask, because the number of columns seems to be different in the 2 outputs, ie the last output has 1 more column (at least what you posted...)

anyhow, this looks like all the rows with contracts like L... have prices that are empty/null ?
what data type is the field TradePrice in the table / view? (again, do NOT use float !!)

I didn't understand that part clearly, if you are saying it is returning 0 , then you need to check the table, from the query side, there is nothing to do, as it is just a select statement

Now if you wanna round it to 2 decimals , use this

SELECT CAST(TradePrice as numeric(10,2) )  as Price
0
 
Guy Hengel [angelIII / a3]Billing EngineerCommented:
note.
WHERE     (Contract LIKE 'LI%') OR
                      (Contract LIKE 'LK%') OR
                      (Contract LIKE 'LL%') OR
                      (Contract LIKE 'LM%')


can be written:
WHERE     (Contract LIKE 'L[IKLM]%' )
0

Sorry if you actually open up the table thru EManager it shows TradePrice data for example:

15.625
48440
but my query shows as 0 for all of them.. Weird.
I right clicked on Design table and it shows as a FLOAT for Data type... Length 8. Any ideas?

Aneesh RetnakaranDatabase AdministratorCommented:
just run the script without the where part  :)

I seee ahhhhhh. But there is no  way to add where and get the same data for the PRICE Column?

I see the data there without the Where in it...........

for a PRICE, float is actually a bad choice. better use numeric / decimal. float / real are floating-point stored, and hence unprecise.

back to the problem: what version / edition are you using?
could it be that all the rows that you show with the where clause actually do have 0 in the price column?

I opened up the table view EM and it shows data on there. When i don't include the where on the query it shows the correct data as well.
SELECT   case positiontype when '1' then 'buy' when '-1' then 'sell' else 'not either' end AS [B/S], comment, CAST(TradePrice as float(20,8) )AS [Price], Quantity AS Volume,

strike, expiringdate, (SUBSTRING (contract+CONVERT(varchar,expiringdate),1,20)) AS [FEEDCODE]

well this is just a query i think the programmers created the FLoat on that column. Right clicked on the table and DEsign table..
                     Column Name  Data Type    Length       Allow Nulls
      TradePrice      float      8      1

we use Float for Strike and i am able to collect the corrcet data for that:
                     Column Name  Data Type    Length       Allow Nulls
      Strike      float      8      1
