    does mysql have an equivalent to Oracle's NUMBER(6,2) ?
    for example: NUMBER(5,2) can output 12000.40
    it will round to the hundredth

    I would use decimal.

    As for rounding say you need to round 123456 / 999 to the hundreth I would do

    round(123456 / 999 *100) /100

    You should get 123.58

    Have fun
