Here is part of my select statement:

((sum(totalflopbets)+sum(totalturnbets)+sum(totalriverbets))/
(sum(totalflopcalls)+sum(totalturncalls)+sum(totalrivercalls))) as agg,

Currently 'agg' is returned as an integer. I want it to be a float or double (anything with 1-2 decimal places.)

Thanks!

Hi!
 (cast(item1 as float)) cast any number to float. Better cast every individual item to float before putting it into the result.
