You can convert it into a char and select only those records whose string-length following the decimal point (.) is greater than 1.

you can use a convert statement for that:


declare @d decimal(10,6)

set @d = 13.2452435


select @d
select convert( decimal (10, 2), @d )

Try this.

select mydecimalcolumn
from mytable
where mydecimalcolumn*10 <> Round(mydecimalcolumn*10,0)

take that last one back. try this

select mydecimalcolumn
from mytable
where cast(mydecimalcolumn as decimal(10,1) <> mydecimalcolumn)

one op only, which is cast to 1dp, so should be quite fast
