Unanswered: Adding number of decimal places during table design
Nice easy one (hopefully) from a newbie on SQL 2000.
I have a table HolidayTakenBooked which is populated from a stored procedure via the following statement;
TRUNCATE TABLE HolidayTakenBooked
INSERT INTO HolidayTakenBooked
SELECT * FROM #TMP_HolidayTakenBooked ORDER BY ABR_Clock_No
I am finding that for certain values in the HolidayTakenBooked table decimals are not being transferred correctly. ie. 0.5 in the TMP table appears as 1 in the HolidayTakenBooked table.
I'm pretty sure that this is down to the data definition of the table see sample field below;
[HOL_DaysTaken1] [decimal](18, 0) NULL ,
So the simple question here is how do I define decimal places when I define a new table. When designing a new table in Enterprise Manager I select decimal and the server does not allow me to change the value of 9 it defaults to.
