SQL> select ceil(2.0700*100)/100 from dual;
CEIL(2.0700*100)/100
--------------------
                2.07

SQL> select ceil(2.0718*100)/100 from dual;
CEIL(2.0718*100)/100

A second look then, suggests you want a zero placeholder to supress trailing zeros, but a non-zero value always rounds up to the next increment.  Correct?

If so then no, nothing I'm immediately able to put my finger on -- but am I on the right track now?
