Dear Stuart,

The Sprintf function may not be able to change the value of the scalar 
variable $total...its only used to format the value for display...

so dividing by 100 seems to be the only way out...or you could use 
string functions to fetch the substrings and concatenate them with 
decimal in between...

hope this helps...

Floating Point number to 2 decimal places
In T-SQL I am trying to get a floating point number returned converted to 2 decimal places.

Formatting a decimal to 2 decimal places
Hi - just testing some code, and the code below returns a number with 3 decimal places (eg. 450.000). Will returning a decimal always give 3 decimal places, and if so, how can I remove the last one?
