Or if you don't want it to round and just want to drop it use this version ofTSQL Round:

SELECT ROUND(123456789.456789, 0, 1) as RoundWithZero

If you want to truncate, so that 12.99999 became 12, you could also do:

FLOOR(decimal_column)

If you always wanted to round up, so that 12.05 became 13, you could do:

CEILING(decimal_column)
