--default data = 3.125, 6.250, 12.500, 18.750, 50.000

select ID, left(sPercent,charindex('.',sPercent,+2)+2) as sPercent from perSize order by ID asc

--after running above = 3.125, 6.25, 12.50, 18.75, 50.00

--all i want to do is remove all trailing zeros so the data looks like: 3.125, 6.25, 12.5, 18.75, 50
