TSQL - Money syntax

Hi Experts,

I have a field:
[Amount]
The amount is:
1000
2000
50
1
BUT not: --it is already truncation and taking away the .00
1000.00
2000.00
50.00
1.00

I need to have:
$1,000
$2,000
$50
$1

So something like:
Money([Amount])

I need the create format.

Please help and thanks

Hi,

You can use the format function like this

SELECT FORMAT(Amount,'$0,0')

This is available in sql 2012

However for sql 2008

there is no direct function

SELECT '$' + convert(varchar(10),Amount)
0

So this is my current string:
REPLACE(SUBSTRING(Amount, + 1, 100), '.00', '') As Fund

Open in new window


So you are saying to add:
'$' + convert(varchar(10),Amount)

I will need help with that?

Please help and thanks....

I should mention that MS Access Reports uses this SP.

Would it be better in Access Reports?

Thanks
REPLACE(SUBSTRING(Amount, + 1, 100), '.00', '') As Fund

I ended up using: Format ([Amount], "#,##0.00") in my Access Report, but I am sure solutions mention work as well.  Thanks
