how to convert form string to number and back?

I have to read and write some number-values form/to the ultralite-DB. In the
reference-DB (Sybase) the fields are defined as numeric(16,6).

I have tried the following in CodeWarrier:

1) Defne the fields in the sql declare section as static char fieldname[17].
This works for download / upload, and showing the values.
But if I have to UPDATE the table I get an SQLE_CONVERSION_ERROR

2) Define the fields as DECL_DECIMAL(16,6).
Now I can't show the value and can't get the Palm-field and write it to the
defined variable because I have only found a sample code to get and set the
Palm-field-values as char-variables.(fldGetTextHandle)

I think all would work if I was able to define the fields as char (like it
works in the first try) and convert them to numerical values only for the
UPDATE -SQL-command.
In the reference-manual for Palm-developers I have found routines in the
section "FloatManager" fplAToF and fplFToA, but they need exponential-format
for the strings.

I'm not a C- or C++-developer. Since now I used Delphi, where I can convert
from string to numbers and back. I KNOW that this is possible in C too, but
I don't know HOW.

Can anyone tell me how to solve this?

Many thanks,
Siegbert Glodek

Convert Number In Strings to Numeric Form
Hi, I need some help in converting strings that contain numbers back into numeric form. Apparently, when I sort string formatted number, the arrangement was according to alphanumeric order (eg. 1, 10,11,2,20,21,3,30... ).

Convert a string to number
Hi. I want to set a value such as 1.5 or 10 to a text box in a report datawindow at the run time. The value will come from the user before he/she runs the report. How do I convert this string in the text box to a number that will be used for further computation at the summary band? I tried number() function, but it requires a real string and refuses to accept a variable or a column name. Thanks in advance for any help.

convert string to number?
Hi, I have a problem where a number read from a file is being treated as a string by perl (I think!). I am using the module RSPerl which is an interface between Perl and the statistical language R. When i read a column of numbers from a file and pass it to the perl/R function i get an "invalid 'type' (character) of argument" error. The reason i think this is a problem on the Perl side is shown by this pseudocode: while(<FILE>){ ... stuff to extract $value from each row ... push(@list1, $value); } @list2 = (100.2, 232.333, 344.2); # these ...

Convert a String to a Number
How can i convert a character to a number, so that the result is only numerical digits, and would always be the same, besides 26 (plus non-alpha characters) if-then statements. like, A = 1 and A always equals 1 so if I had the string:  1234A after converting, I would get the result:  12341 A doesn't necessarily have to = 1, or even a single digit.  It just has to equal a numerical... number. perhaps you can do something like this.  Store your letters in an array A and maintain a cooresponding array B that has the numeric equivalent you would want to repla...

Converting a string to a number
Hello everyone, first post and all that, i got a bit of a problem. First off, the DB information: id: autonumber score: text Both these feilds in the database are numerical, however, the score is used as a text feild, the id an autonumber. When i use a querystring to pass the score over to another page, so that the page produces only information with that perticular score matching, it works. When i try to use the ID number, i get a case miss match. I can only fathom that this is because its an autonumber. However, i need to keep the DB design as it is, as when i add a ne...

how to convert a number to string in SQL?
I search the help for T-sql, still don't know how to convert a number, for example 12345 to a string with formating like 12,345 Thanks for your help. The best place to do such formatting is in the front end, not at the database level.That being said, you could use a combination of the CONVERT and CAST functions (see CAST and CONVERT) to cast the number as a money type, then convert it to a varchar, and then strip off the decimal point and 2 0's at the end:DECLARE @test intSELECT @test = 12345SELECT REPLACE(CONVERT(varchar(50), CAST(@test AS money), 1),'.00','')Or, you could make use of a ...
