I have two floats with different decimal points some are 3 decimal points and some are 8 decimal points
I haave two float columns in the table and What I would like to do
Is get valuecol(1)-->convert it to varchar(with 4 decimal points, so if the originalvalue is 3 decimal points the converted varchar should be 4 decimal points) then concatenate this to the converted value of col(2) which will be the same format
and finally get both as converted(col1)_Coverted(col2)
For xample:
lets say I have float1= 1234.234
                         float2= -2.345678
I would like to get a string(1234.2340_-2.3456)
How do I do that?
