I need a simple formula to round down numbers the the nearest 2 decimals in an MS SQL view.

What I do would look like this in Excel:
ROUNDDOWN(Sales;2)

I have tried with Round and I am able to round to 2 decimals but the problem is it rounds up rather than down.

45,145 should in my case be 41,14.

Try deducting 0,001 from the value prior to using ROUND, e.g.:

SELECT ROUND(ColumnName - 0,001, 2) AS ROUNDDOWN
FROM TableName;
