Hi

When I create a table using the following SQL statement the column [Total Stock]  seems to have
no decimal places. Do I have to specify the number of places eg Decimal(18,10)?

 CREATE TABLE MARA ([ID] bigint identity(1,1) not null primary key, [ValA] nvarchar(MAX), [Article] nvarchar(MAX), [Article description] nvarchar(MAX), [Total Stock] Decimal, [BUn] nvarchar(MAX),[MS] nvarchar(50))"

Correct, or use a predefined format e.g. money which is 4dp (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ms187752.aspx).

Yes, you need to provide the number of places:
[Total Stock] Decimal(18,10)
