brejk:  doesn't your code produce too many digits?  The author requested xxx.xxxxx?

Steve: You are right, my code produces one digit more :-) Thanks.

So finally:

declare @dec decimal(38,10)
set @dec = 6.666666666
SELECT REPLACE(STR(@dec, 9, 5), ' ', '0')
select right(replicate('0',10) + cast(cast(@dec as decimal(9,5)) as varchar(9)), 9)

Results of both SELECTs are 006.66667.

Just a little note...

Modify your variable to 6.333335...

Then the results become:
006.33333 and 006.33334 ;-)
