I have the following calculation

SUM(CASE WHEN ( ord_date BETWEEN @WkStartDate AND @WkEndDate
                        AND DATA.line_status = 'I'
                      ) --  CONDITIONAL
                      THEN ( DATA.total_qty )
                 ELSE ( 0 )
            END) AS [Wk TY Unit Sales]

Open in new window


My current results are 50.00, 42.00, 0.00, ETC. I need 50, 42, 0

Thank you

CAST the first THEN value in your CASE block as an int..

SUM(
   CASE WHEN ord_date BETWEEN @WkStartDate AND @WkEndDate AND DATA.line_status = 'I' --  CONDITIONAL
   THEN CAST(DATA.total_qty as int)    -- here
   ELSE  0 
   END) AS [Wk TY Unit Sales]

Wrong Calculation sorry

SUM(CASE WHEN ( ord_date BETWEEN @WkStartDate AND @WkEndDate )
                 THEN ( DATA.total_qty / DATA.total_qty + INV.Size_Qty )
                 ELSE ( 0 )
            END) AS [Wk TY U S/O%] ,

Same concept, cast the first THEN.. value as an int.

SUM(CASE WHEN ( ord_date BETWEEN @WkStartDate AND @WkEndDate )
                 THEN CAST(DATA.total_qty / DATA.total_qty + INV.Size_Qty  as int)
                 ELSE ( 0 )
            END) AS [Wk TY U S/O%] ,

>Wk TY U S/O%
btw this is a poor choice of column names as the spaces and punctuation marks force the use of square brackets [ ] surrounding it, which is one thing to potentially forget and throw an error.

>DATA.total_qty / DATA.total_qty + INV.Size_Qty
btw you'll want to eyeball this to make sure you want the divide to occur before the add.  If not you'll have to use parentheses to set the order of precedence:

SELECT 1.00 / 2 + 3     -- Returns 3.5
SELECT (1.00 / 2) + 3   -- Returns 3.5
SELECT 1.00 / (2 + 3)   -- Returns .2

You can also use the Floor function to format your result.
Example
SELECT FLOOR(55.00)
