Is this what you are looking for?
declare @value decimal(12,2)
set @value=100000
select cast(@value as varchar(12))

If you need further formatting with commas, etc, there is an article in this site which discusses the same.

You have to convert your decimal field to money and after that to string
see this sample
declare @MyValue as decimal(18,2)
SET @MyValue = 100000.00
 
SELECT CONVERT(nvarchar,cast(@MyValue as money),1)

Open in new window
