Displaying Currency without the Decimal in SQL

I have a Column in a Table that has Currency input into it.  I need to display this Currency as part of a String without the Decimal.

How do I go about doing this?

This is what I have thus far
SELECT '0000012345678901'+LTRIM(CAST(ITEMNO AS VARCHAR(20)))+''+CAST(checknet AS VARCHAR(20))+''+CONVERT(varchar(10),checkdt, 112)+CASE(ckstatus)
WHEN 'O' THEN '' WHEN 'V' THEN 'C' END +''  as Val
FROM mytable

Where you see +CAST(checknet AS VARCHAR(20)) is where I need to extract the information from that Column and display it without the Decimal.

Thank you

Hi Rmum,

Probably the easiest way is just to cast it to an integer.

  SELECT cast (column * 100 as INTEGER) FROM ...

That will preserve the two decimal places and display the entire value.



Good Luck,
Kent

Kent,
Could you possibly put what you're talking about into the string that I listed?

Would using the REPLACE (string_expression, search_string,  replacement_string) function work for you? Might look something like this:


 REPLACE (CAST(checknet AS VARCHAR(20)), '.',  '')

SELECT
  '0000012345678901'+LTRIM(CAST(ITEMNO AS VARCHAR(20)))+''+
  cast (cast (column * 100 as INTEGER) as varchar(20) +
  ''+CONVERT(varchar(10),checkdt, 112)+
  CASE(ckstatus) WHEN 'O' THEN '' WHEN 'V' THEN 'C' END +''  as Val
FROM mytable

Though the double casting might make musickmann's suggestion to use REPLACE easier.
