Formatting a decimal value in SQL SERVER 2008

I know SQL Server 2008 doesn't have the "Format" command. Is there a way of truncating zeroes after a decimal point?

Thanks!

None that I'm aware of, other than CASTing the value with the appropriate number of decimal places.

You can ROUND() a decimal to an integer.

Edit:  Drat... took too long typing!

Agreed more details would help, but have you tried ROUND()? Despite the name, the 3rd param can be used to truncate, rather than round. For example, both of these

SELECT ROUND(748.58, 0, 1)
SELECT ROUND(748.00, 0, 1)

Would produce:

748
