Do you mean the total from multiple rows of "taxvalue * quantity", or just a single record?
If it is due to multiple records, the reason will be due to accumulated rounding errors - this sometimes cannot be avoided and requires complicated workarounds.

value = $10.50, tax = 1%, value * tax = $0.105 - $0.11
2 rows, $0.11 x 2 = $0.22

That is already 1 cent away from $21 + 1%, which is $21.21

Does this change the result?

Change this
(taxvalue * quantity)as total

to this
(taxvalue * quantity* 1.00000)as total

You may not need to use so many zeros after the decimal point.

using this i am getting the same value (taxvalue * quantity* 1.00000)

the problem happening is only when the quantity is more than 1. if quantity is equal to 1 then it is coming perfectly fine.

Add taxvalue to the list of selected columns, it's not in the spreadsheet.

select priority,saleinvoiceid,invoiceidbystore,storeid1,customerid1,globalproductid,Description,quantity,unitprice,listprice,paymentname,taxitem,convert(nvarchar,invoicedate,101) invoicedate,taxid,taxrate,taxvalue, (taxvalue * quantity)as total
 from dbo.temptable1  where convert(nvarchar,invoicedate,101)= convert(nvarchar,getdate()-2,101)
 group by priority,saleinvoiceid,invoiceidbystore,storeid1,customerid1,globalproductid,Description,quantity,unitprice,listprice,paymentname,taxitem,invoicedate,taxid,taxrate,taxvalue
order by invoicedate,invoiceidbystore

Hi romeiovasu,

How did adding another column into the select list correct the problem with rounding??
