Hi

I have this code:

SELECT
[Policy_Id] = SNAP.POLICY_ID
,[Mex_Id] = FR.INV_PTF_NAME
,[Rebate_Amount_Gross] = ISNULL(CONVERT(DECIMAL(6,2),((FR.REBATE_RATE * SNAP.TOTAL_UNITS)/100)), 0.00)

and I get this error:
Arithmetic overflow error converting numeric to data type numeric.

please help.

DECIMAL(6,2) means:
- a total of 6 digits
- 4 digits to the left of the decimal point
- 2 digits to the right of the decimal point

So maybe 4 digits to the left are not enough?

Try DECIMAL(12,2) for example...
