for postgresql, which I'm running here, this works fine.

So what does

select ROUND(50.002, 2)

print in your case?
would expect 50.000000 then, too...

Which DB system are you using?
kumaresan2011Commented:
Surely this will work

SELECT ROUND(COLUMNAME/100,2) FROM TABLENAME`;

Ex :

SELECT ROUND(PSG_SUBTOTAL/100,2) FROM `partssalesgroup`;

if u needs another thing then, try this also
pls change your field datetype like this COLUMNANE  DECIMAL(2,2)
