I know we can do a for dates.
Convert(varchar, Mydate,100) as 'MyDateFormat'

How do I do the same for money to currency so, to change the below prices to $00.00 format:


StartDate StandardCost ListPrice totalcost Profit

this seemed to work

'$'+Convert(varchar,Convert(money,StandardCost),1)

any better ways please let me know. I know its better to do this in the front end but if a client needs a quick export this is handy to copy straight to Excel.

Sorted it, you dont need the SUM function.

Use AdventureWorks
Go

Select Convert(varchar,SellStartDate,100) as 'StartDate', -- convert to date format
'£' + Convert(varchar,Convert(money,StandardCost),1) as StandardCost, -- convert to currency
'£' + Convert(varchar,Convert(money,ListPrice),1) as ListPrice,
'£' + Convert(varchar,Convert(money,ListPrice + StandardCost),1) as totalcost,
'£' + Convert(varchar,Convert(money,ListPrice - StandardCost),1) as Profit
from Production.Product
Where StandardCost >0

Group by ListPrice, StandardCost, SellStartDate
Order by StandardCost

RESULT

StartDate StandardCost ListPrice totalcost Profit
Jul 1 2003 12:00AM £0.86 £2.29 £3.15 £1.43
