Update query in MS access

I made an access table from data in MS excel that needs to be used to update data in a sql server table.  I have the update query setup, but the data is currency, and when I run the update query, I am getting several decimal places to the right of the decimal point, and I only want two.  The data type of the sql server fields are float.  Can I convert this data that I am updating from to be able to get it into sql server as only 2 decimal places?

sql query:

UPDATE [Inventory Value] LEFT JOIN dbo_Operation1 ON ([Inventory Value].Seq = dbo_Operation1.nSequence) AND ([Inventory Value].PartID = dbo_Operation1.idPart) SET dbo_Operation1.qStdCost = [Inventory Value]![Std Cost (Calc)], dbo_Operation1.qCustomCost = [Inventory Value]![Cum Step Value]
WHERE ((([Inventory Value].PartID)=2430));

try this


UPDATE [Inventory Value] LEFT JOIN dbo_Operation1 ON ([Inventory Value].Seq = dbo_Operation1.nSequence) AND ([Inventory Value].PartID = dbo_Operation1.idPart)
SET dbo_Operation1.qStdCost = formatnumber([Inventory Value]![Std Cost (Calc)],2), dbo_Operation1.qCustomCost = formatnumber([Inventory Value]![Cum Step Value],2)
WHERE ((([Inventory Value].PartID)=2430));

What about wrapping the currency values in a SQL ROUND() function:
dbo_Operation1.qCustomCost = ROUND([Inventory Value]![Cum Step Value], 2)
