I have this line in my SP:
Cast(ceiling((TotalRows/@PageSize)) as int) as TotPages

I am using CTE and  ROW_NUMBER()OVER

when the TotalRows = 282 and @PageSize = 60 I am receiving TotPages = 4 while I really need 5 as the result.

How can this be done?
Thanks

Hi,

Try

Cast(ceiling((cast(TotalRows as decimal(6)/@PageSize)) as int) as TotPages

Hi,

You need to cast TotalRows and @PageSize to decimals to ensure degree of accuracy you require to then round up:

SELECT CAST(CEILING(CAST(TotalRows AS DECIMAL)/CAST(@PageSize AS DECIMAL)) AS INTEGER) as TotPages

In MSSQL, when you divide an integer with an integer, the result will be an integer. So in your case, 282/60 will be 4 instead of 4.7. So ceiling(4) will return 4. Just cast the variable with float or decimal or any like. it should work.
