The difference between these two dates (StartDate, StopDate) when divided by 60 seconds (i.e. converted to minutes) is greater than 99.99 minutes. You need to alter table temptbl_Stops to allow more ranges for StopTime column. E.g. if you wish to have the StopTime to be in 999.99 range use this syntax:
``````ALTER TABLE temptbl_Stops ALTER COLUMN StopTime DECIMAL(5,2) NULL
GO
INSERT INTO temptbl_Stops (StartDate, StopDate, StopTime, DownTimeCode)
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT StartDate, StopDate, Avg(cast(DATEDIFF(s, StartDate, StopDate)/60 AS DECIMAL(5,2))) AS StopTime, DowntimeCode
FROM         dbo.tbl_MachineData
GROUP BY StartDate, StopDate, DowntimeCode
HAVING       Avg(cast(DATEDIFF(s, StartDate, StopDate)/60 AS decimal(5,2))) IS NOT NULL and DowntimeCode IS NULL and StopDate IS NOT NULL
ORDER BY StartDate
``````
If it is still not enough ALTER to a different type, i.e. DECIMAL(6,2)
